These youngsters from Carbrain and Kildrum Primary are among the first to take part in a Cumbernauld festival of the written word.
They have been among the local schools taking participating in the ReimagiNation festival which will be held in Cumbernauld from Friday, May 19 to Sunday, May 21.
The youngsters have been working with author Mike Nicholson to write about their town and were hard at work at a special pre-festival event in New Town Hall when photographer Michael Gillen arrived to snap them.
Edinburgh International Book Festival has been involved in organising the event which will partly focus on the social history of Scotland’s New Towns.
It will also feature author sessions, workshops and debates.
More details will appear in an upcoming edition.
