As a starting point for your own imaginings, this workshop, led by novelist Margaret Elphinstone, will look at the diaries of Henrietta Liston, botanist and diplomat’s wife, who travelled around America 200 years ago. Henrietta’s words transport us to the villages of North Carolina, the dining rooms of Philadelphia, and the taverns of Virginia. With the opportunity to try writing exercises, this workshop gives you a taste of using historical material to inspire and inform your own work.

This event is brought to you in partnership with the National Library of Scotland.
