September and October see the trees blush with colour and swell with fruit, and I am going to be celebrating their wonders with the A-B-Tree project - 18 creative writing events around Scotland exploring the connections between trees and writing, one for each tree associated with a letter of the Gaelic alphabet. My website has a page with more information about the project here. Come along to an event near you, or if there isn't one and you'd like one, please get in touch. I might well not be able to stop at 18 events!
Thanks to the Forestry Commission and Hi-Arts for financial support to make this project possible - and I'm proud to be taking part in the International Year of Forests.
