anthology of writing by scottish young people

Schools from across Scotland have worked with professional writers and musicians to produce an anthology of stories and poems exploring loss. The work was inspired by personal experience of loss, as well as stories shared by local care home residents, of their ‘absent friends’ – loved ones who are dead, but whose stories live on. All the stories were written by young people aged 11—16 years.
