This is a group for children age 12 and under who meet every other Saturday at the Scottish Poetry Library for creative writing workshops run by poet Rachel Plummer. A small, friendly group that welcomes writers of all abilities, covering a variety of topics, from stories to scripts, poems to podcasts, sci-fi to historical. Each workshop involves warm up exercises, involved activities, and an open ended optional “homework” activity to take away. The group doesn’t worry about spelling or grammar, and no one has to share their work if they don’t want to.
The current block of workshops runs from January to March 2019, on the following dates: January 5th and 19th, February 9th and 23rd, March 9th and 23rd. The cost is £10 per session or £50 for the block of 6 sessions. If cost is a barrier to you, please do get in touch as there are a number of free spaces available in each workshop. Contact Rachel at RachelElizabethPlummer@gmail.com for more details or to book.
