Latest offerings in monthly Life

This month, Shetland Life contributors dip into a host of interesting subjects.

The features are kicked off by Neil Riddell, who offers up an informed debate on public funding on the arts and asks whether too much is being spent. Recently awarded poet Jen Hadfield is interviewed by Cathy Feeny about the impact that Shetland has had on her work.

Billy Williamson ventures into the past in his investigation of World War Two air crashes, prompted by the discovery of an unusual piece of aircraft wreckage.

We are treated to some beautiful images from Ben Mullay, which were taken in Bigton and showcase the photographer’s eye for simple but stunning scenes.

Technology is the talking point for Marsali Taylor, who takes a look at the interest, among older generations, in the internet and social networking sites.

Twenty-5one questions is this month answered by Matthew Lawrence, who talks about his childhood in New Zealand and his love of green living.

There is Shetland culture aplenty with a look at place names by Eileen Brooke-Freeman and Mary Blance’s favourite Shetland words. Ann Prior is back from South America to tempt the taste buds with her collection of recipes, including some yummy looking fish cakes.

As well as kids’ stories, puzzles, wildlife and cartoons, the magazine is rounded off with the usual interesting columns, including an intriguing look at modern language by Bryan Peterson.

The March edition is out now.
