We couldn't get award-winning children's author Alex McCall on campus this year - so we decided to recreate him as an animation! We have been working with Alex to create animated shorts that we hope will encourage you to have a go at writing flash fiction. We'll be broadcasting the five micro tutorials (each around 2 minutes long) throughout Book Week Scotland on our Book Week Scotland Activity Page and our University YouTube channel(this will open in a new window).
There will also be a chance to chat with Alex at our LIVE "Collections Conversations" event on Thursday 19th November. Join us online and ask the real-life Alex some questions! Email the event organiser to receive a link and details of how to join this event.
