I write in Scots and through my writing and workshops encourage children, young people and adults to find or rediscover their Scots voice. For so many pupils in Scotland, learning about Scots builds confidence and raises attainment. My sessions are always fun learning experiences about the Scots language, which is one of our precious national resources.
