As part of our annual writing project - Your Stories(this will open in a new window) - we asked people all over Scotland to submit true stories inspired by this year’s theme, Future.
Every day we cast ourselves into the future, imagining what’s next in our lives. We tell ourselves stories about where we'll go and with who, or reflect on how the past has shaped us. For many of us, the future represents opportunity and gives us hope that we can make positive change for our loved ones, our communities or ourselves.
We collated some of out favourite stories into a book, Future, which will be distributed for free across the country during Book Week Scotland 2020. But don't worry if you can't get your hands on a copy; you can enjoy Future online as an audiobook or listen to it on Soundcloud right here.
