Echoes of the City: Edinburgh’s Hidden Stories launches this month and features my short story ‘Pufferfish’. Echoes is a fantastic storytelling project set up in partnership with Edinburgh City of Literature and The Bridge Awards.
Fifteen short stories and poems, all set in off-the-beaten-track Edinburgh, have been magicked into geolocated podcasts. Listeners, using the Podwalk app, can stray, escape, gambol away from the familiar tourist trail and experience Edinburgh as imagined by fifteen writers. Or, for folks who prefer to enjoy their literature on the sofa, in bed, at a café table, in the garden shed, you can listen to or read the stories and poems direct from the Echoes website on SoundCloud .
My story, ‘Pufferfish’, is set in Edinburgh’s Regent pub.
And so, I look forward to the launch next Tuesday, 16 May, and taking my first Echoes tour.
