Stories Published Elsewhere
Anne’s short stories have been published in various anthologies, including New Writing Scotland, published by the ASLS. Some other stories were commissioned and published in book form or on websites. These include:
Anne was commissioned to write two stories for the charity Artlink.
Artlink is an arts and disability organisation whose aim is to increase opportunities to take part in the arts for those who experience disadvantage or disability and to help encourage positive change.
This story, which deals with the issue of caring, was published as a pamphlet. Anne spoke with carers, who talked about their lives, and created a fiction piece based on some of the issues they raised. You can read the text of the story here.
You can listen to Anne’s reading of But here.
Beautifully illustrated by Tess Wood, this story explores the issue of mental health from the perspective of a child and is intended for upper primary school children. It may be of special interest to teachers.
