Established in January 2002, Itchy Coo is a collaboration of writers, illustrators, actors, schools, a publisher, and marketing and design teams. In a very short time, it has become the premier publisher of Scots Language teaching materials. With Lottery funding from the Scottish Arts Council and from local education authorities, the imprint continues to develop its range of high-quality, well-written Scots Language books. In addition to publishing, Itchy Coo also visits schools and libraries and provides in-service training for teachers within the framework of the 5–14 curriculum. Itchy Coo is a partnership between B&W Publishing, Edinburgh and Scottish writers Matthew Fitt and James Robertson. James is the General Editor of Itchy Coo; and Matthew is the project’s National Schools and Communities Scots Language Development Officer.
Scots words are fun and Itchy Coo offers new ways in to learning a language that is an integral part of Scottish life. Itchy Coo’s comprehensive and attractive range of new titles means that the Scots Language is now available for all.
