This time I'm throwing down a Challenge for readers AND writers.
Did you have teachers like those portrayed in J.M.Barrie's An Edinburgh Eleven?
I want to throw down a challenge to others. Can you construct your own Eleven? Or even a Seven, or a Five? Whether it be from University or School, can you write a (non libellous) series of sketches about teachers who influenced you?
If you take up the challenge, then send us your work – we’ll share it around the members of the Lit Soc and pick our favourite to receive a free copy of one of our new Barrie series books. Get reading An Edinburgh Eleven and more importantly get writing your own version.
I am working on my own Eleven, hand-picked from the academics of St Andrews in the 1980s. I'll be updating very soon but I want to hear about the teachers who inspired (or confounded) YOU - and your thoughts on Barrie's 'Eleven' are also welcomed.
Just add your comments below, or if you have longer pieces email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll upload the piece for you.
