From the Blank Page to The Written Word

On Sunday 8th of June 2014 we are holding an all-day writing workshop called From the Blank Page to The Written Word led by award winning writer Janis Mackay. Anyone who came to the previous workshop led by Janis back in September 2013 will know how interesting and inspiring her workshops can be. The day will be spent developing writing ideas from the initial thought to the basis of a poem or story. This is an ambitious aim but we know we can do it. Our venue will be the Mel Grey Centre at Linlithgow Canal Centre, situated in the heart of Linlithgow. More details can be found below the break.
