Message from the Skies is an interactive literary project which will get you out and about in the city. You download the app from iTunes or Google Play and then set off to find the locations where projections reveal at least some of the words written by crime author Val McDermid.

When you have completed the journey you can then enter competitions sponsored by Edinburgh Airport and their airline partners, and you will reveal all of the words making up the story.

Now the work of three young writers will feature alongside that of Ms McDermid. Lucy Hutcheon(11), Maisie Dalton(12) and Jemma Glover(16) all won a competition to have their writing displayed to the public.

Earlier today in Parliament Square the author met her three young colleagues and posed for the camera.

Jemma Glover(16) who won a short story writing competition to have her work
projected alongside Val’’s as part of  Message from the Skies which runs until 25 January in a new celebration of Edinburgh’’s and Scotland’’s rich literary heritage  .
