English - Just like you and me

20th February 2009 at 00:00

A new anthology of true stories professes to show the "ordinary genius" of Scotland's people and offers a source of inspiration for pupils' creative writing. Days Like This is the result of a project run by the Scottish Book Trust with BBC Radio Scotland, which gave people from all backgrounds the chance to write about a special day in their life. Famous contributors include musician Evelyn Glennie, author Irvine Welsh, Idlewild singer Roddy Woomble, actress Siobhan Redmond, mountaineer Jamie Andrew and broadcaster Hardeep Singh Kohli. "Days Like This offers everyone in Scotland the chance to contribute, tell their story, and create a literary time capsule detailing the experiences, the trials and tribulations, the yarns and histories, the fortunes and mishaps of the people living in Scotland in 2008," said Mr Woomble.
