The workshops will be held from May to September and all are welcome to apply for a place. Each session will focus on a particular genre (poetry, fiction, memoir, creative non-fiction, surprise writing) and will include fun warm-ups, a writing chllenge, time to share and ideas to take your work further at home (optional!). By the end of the series, you'll have a portfolio of new work and the chance to be part of a publication to be launched at the 2015 BOOKMARK festival.

Booking is essential so please contact Petrina Menzies by email at or telephone on 01250 881770 or 882242. The workshops are generously funded by a grant from the Drumderg Community Fund.


It was great fun and beautifully organised. A wonderful community venue, great flowers, fantastic sound and light and I love the army of red t-shirts - I think I’ll be taking a few ideas back to Bloody Scotland with me. Please ask me back and thank you for asking me to Chair Ron
