Selkies and kelpies and wulvers – oh my! Poet Rachel Plummer explores Scottish myths and legends with an LGBT+ twist in this active and interactive storytelling session for children aged 6 – 12 and their families.
Rachel Plummer is a poet from Edinburgh, where she lives with her two young children and too many books. She is a Scottish Book Trust New Writers Award recipient and has won or been placed in competitions including the Troubadour, Magic Oxygen and Ouse Washes poetry prizes. She has had poems in magazines including The Dark Horse, Mslexia and The Stinging Fly.
