Scottish Mountianeering Press

  Full details  Creatives is where Scotland’s artistic and natural spheres meet; where sublime interactions with nature are transformed into works of art. There is no single way to express these profound experiences: dark, light-hearted, intense, humorous; in verse, in paint or on film—they are as diverse as the landscape itself. We welcome works of poetry, prose and visual art from unpublished, emerging and established artists of all backgrounds. ‘Publishing with Creatives has allowed me to show my mountain-related work on a dedicated website which reaches people with a particular interest in the Scottish mountains, but may not usually frequent art galleries.’ — Clare Yarrington (Visual Art | Neach-ealain Lèirsinneach ) * ’S e ùrlar digiteach a th’ann an Creatives airson neach sam bith a tha air luach a lorg ann an iognaidhean nàdarra na h-Alba airson an cuid ealain a chruthachadh; gus an obair sin a roinn, gus obair le muinntir na coimhearsneachd agus gus beachdan ù
