Family legends

29th October 2010 at 01:00

The Scottish Book Trust and BBC Radio Scotland are asking children to write their Family Legend, "a true story about a relative which, through the telling, has become legendary in your family". The story could be about someone who is notorious for their adventures and scrapes, or a hero in their own time. It could be your granny or someone who fought in the war. The best legends could be broadcast on Radio Scotland or published in a book. Closing date March 31, 2011.
