This is a group for teen writers that meets every other Saturday at the Scottish Poetry Library for a series of 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, even video game writing.
Each workshop involves some warm up exercises, some more involved activities, and an open ended optional “homework” activity to take away. The group also thinks about publication and routes towards it, supporting those who feel ready to submit their work to publishers. The group doesn’t worry about spelling or grammar, and no one has to share their work if they don’t want to. We’re focused on creating something we like, and setting our own goals for our writing.
The current block of workshops runs from January to March 2019, on the following dates: January 5th and 19th, February 9th and 23rd, and 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.
