Saturdays 23rd and 30th March 2019, 10.00am – 4.00pm both days.
This March, join writers Kerrie McKinnel and Steph Newham at Shambellie House (New Abbey, Dumfries, DG2 8HQ) to learn about instilling a sense of place into your creative writing.
Over the course of two Saturdays, group workshops will focus on the creation of atmosphere, the link between setting and characters, and how to avoid clichés and transform stereotypes. There will be time for individual reflection, exploration of the house and grounds, and personal writing.
An allocated one-to-one session will give you the opportunity to discuss any issues or challenges you are facing in your writing, with the option to bring along a short extract of work for more focused critique.
The second weekend will culminate with the opportunity to share your new/edited writing with the group.
