Three talented Island writers have been commissioned to each produce a short story based on the Between Islands theme. Kevin MacNeil (Western Isles), Alison Miller (Orkney) and Roseanne Watt (Shetland) will also have the opportunity to access the local authority museum and archive and library services across the three Island groups, including the new museum and Archive at Lews Castle, which will provide the writers with a wealth of related resources.  The work will be completed by the end of March 2016, when events will be programmed in each island group to celebrate and discuss the work, and a publication will be created.
