Save the Sea Turtles

Scottish Shorts, Series 11 Episode 3 of 3

By Helen Sedgewick.

Final story in a series of new writing from Scotland. A retired Professor of Ecology, who is grieving for the loss of his daughter, volunteers at a sea turtle charity based in Kefalonia. The work brings solace, in spite of the uncaring mass of tourists.

Helen Sedgwick is a research physicist turned freelance writer. She has been published internationally in over forty magazines, journals and anthologies, and she won a Scottish Book Trust New Writers Award in 2012. She's co-editor of two literary magazines - Gutter and Fractured West - and has performed her work at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, The Edinburgh Fringe, and Glasgow's Aye Write. In a perfect world, she would spend half her life as a writer in Scotland, and the other half on a beach in Kefalonia with the sea turtles. Her writing is about an imperfect world.

Read by Paul Young.

Produced by Kirsteen Cameron.
