|Mars Will Send No More...|
Really looking forward to sharing stories old and new with you this year. Some right good projects on the starting block.
For now though, here's a New Year challenge for ye. Fancy writing for the heritage and folklore rollercoaster that is the Tales of the Oak blog? We're always after original insights, unusual heritage or forgotten tales. Sure, Inverclyde is our main focus, but occasionally we dabble elsewhere.
So that's fiction, folklore, poetry, project info and updates and research on our recurrent themes (if you're not sure what they are, read over the most popular posts listings) 500 - 1000 words.
Now *awkward pause*, while we all have our views on the indyref debate, the unfortunately negative polarising power of those discussions for some folk means we won't be specifically covering that here during 2014. Sorry about that, but y'know, it's not like we're short of space to have that debate. I gather that's what twitter is mostly for now.
All pieces will be credited to author, remain copyrighted to them, and we will link to your own blogs etc if you have them. Sadly though, there's no cash, only glory and the satisfaction of a job well done. We're all volunteers here.
So...if you have something you'd like to say...
