FairTrade Fortnight starts today. And today Scotland has been afforded FairTrade Nation status. I’m not sure what that means, all I know is I’m doing my bit for Fairtrade by running the festival and writing fairtrade fiction. And hopefully others will join in!

Guerrilla Midgie Publishing

Welcome to the festival. This is the start of FairTrade Fortnight and we very much hope you’ll come here regularly and join in by sharing your creativity with us.

The story of fairtrade is the story of people. Real people with lives very different to ours. But people with the same hopes, dreams and aspirations.  This fortnight if you watch the films and read the reports you’ll be transported from winter in the UK to countries all over the world.  Bring a bit of sunshine into your life each day. And bring some sunshine for workers around the world. Make fairtrade the inspiration for your flash fiction.  And let us see what you can do!

You may want to contribute every day or you may want to write about a particular product or issue.  It’s totally up to you. But remember, a bit of research won’t go amiss before you…
