On Saturday 13th May 2017 we are holding a morning creative writing workshop led by chair Stephen Shirres. The workshop is ideal for people who are looking to get into writing as well as those with a lot more experience. The day will be spent developing writing ideas from the initial thought to the basis of a poem or story. The aim is that at the end of the session you’ll have, at least, the start of a story or poem if not a first draft. Our venue will be Linlithgow Academy Library. More details, including a full address, can be found below the break. After the session we will be moving to the West Port Hotel to have a late lunch and continue the writing chat.
If you would like to attend this workshop please email us at WLWriters@gmail.com
