Back Wynd of the Mind

Mark Pithie

As a native Aberdonian, Mark Pithie has observed and chronicled the constantly changing face of the city and its people.

The poems he has written reflect this, interwoven with his personal reminiscences of yesteryear.

Mark's work has appeared in numerous small press magazines and websites, most recently in Kelly's Cats with the Lemon Tree Writers. He read his poem Cutting It at the May Day Workers Rally at the Castlegate and appeared in this year's Word Festival.

E. E. Chandler

E. E. Chandler is native to Aberdeen. Fairly new to the writing scene, she is working on her first collection of poems and trying out short stories. She writes to remember and reads to forget. Favourite themes include unfamiliar places, madness, and failing relationships (sometimes all together).

Her poetry is featured in Shades of Time, the latest collection from Lemon Tree Writers.

Morna Annandale

Morna Annandale lives and works in Aberdeen. She spent her childhood in Montrose and her poems are often inspired by the history and landscape of that area, in particular the village of Ferryden.
