The National Library of Scotland’s has appointed Shane Strachan its Scots Scriever residency for 2022-23. Strachan is a published writer, working across disciplines and developing work which explores the stories of the North East of Scotland and beyond.
This year, the post was designed to promote North East Scots, or Doric as it is known locally. The residency will offer Strachan the opportunity to explore the richness of the National Library’s Scots language collections, as well as give him the space and time to produce original work in Doric.
