A special occasion
It is thirty years since Moniack Mhor opened its doors, welcoming our first poetry course in 1993 with Liz Lochhead, Roger McGough and guest, the late Aonghas MacNeacail. Once a working croft of cattle barn and cottage, the buildings fell into disrepair in the 60s, until it was discovered by Kit and Sophia Fraser in 1991.
After a 24-hour fundraising poethon, lots of letters to trusts and foundations, nearly two years of restoration and many invites to novelists, poets, playwrights and many more, the centre began its new life as a creative hub for writers. It’s with huge admiration for the literary community that they invested their time and energy in the early years to make the centre what it is today, that we venture forth into our 30th year.
From 17th May 2023 to 16th May 2024, we’ll be celebrating this milestone year in as many ways as we can, so look out for more stories, memories, special courses and events on our website, blog, and social media networks.

Coming up later in 2024….

These include Poetry, Fiction, Crime, Non-Fiction, Short Fiction, Playwriting, Writing & Walking, and Memoir, as well as courses exploring themes such as nature, climate change, and parenthood.
