Dear All,


I am currently working on a project related to the myth of the Selkie.  I am researching the different versions and types of stories related to sealskin creatures. My interest is primarily on how these stories are transmitted orally. I have done extensive research on the internet and libraries, but my aim is to collect as many different audio versions as I can. 


These will be part of an ongoing artistic project I am making on the islands. I will be visiting form the 30th till the 14th of February. If you are interested in telling your version of the tale please contact me at erien.withouck@hotmail.com


I will be very grateful for any help, in return I can offer an original print from one of my Shetland photographs.


Thank you!
