High school pupils in Livingston have been inspired by the edgy writing of contemporary teen author Saci Lloyd.

Saci visited Livingston’s James Young High School on Wednesday of last week and spoke to senior pupils about her writing.

The Manchester-based author is admired by young people for her outspoken character and political style.

Her work tackles big issues facing young society such as the increasingly frantic pace of global technology and environmental concerns about global warming, bio-diversity and overpopulation.

Saci commented: “I always have a great time when I come north of the border; the kids are so lively and well read.

‘‘It’s a real pleasure to take part in events with them.”

Saci is passionate about getting young people to participate in debate and creating their own stories through writing.

She has published three books to date; The Carbon Diaries 2015, The Carbon Diaries 2017, and Momentum.
