Plus there will be music by Linda Jaxson and Ronnie Garrity too!

So, for this episode, we’re bringing to you Janet’s ‘In Process Masterclass’ from December 2016! Janet is a multi-award-winning poet, playwright, fiction, non-fiction, radio, television and screenwriter who also writes for children, earning herself a well-deserved place as one of Scotland’s most popular writers.
