Conversations in Stone

Delighted to be included in this sparkling anthology of prose and poetry celebrating the life of Hugh Miller, geologist and writer, with my highly commended piece Updraft. It’s set in a place he knew well, on a summit in Glen Coe, where a young woman is wavering on the edge of a future she does not want.

The book was launched in March at the Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery, almost under the eyes of Dippy the Dinosaur, on tour from the Natural History Museum in London and can be bought direct from Edinburgh Geological Society

The Scottish Geodiversity Forum runs The Hugh Miller Writing Competition with the Friends of Hugh Miller.

Hugh Miller Writing Competition

Delighted to be highly commended in the Testimonies of the Rocks: the Hugh Miller Writing Competition in May for prose. The winning entries are really lovely and worth a read. The competition was designed to raise the profile of this famous Scottish geologist and writer whose love of the landscape of Scotland shines through his words.
