Developing your story, with Iain F. MacLeòid
Hiort by Iain F. MacLeòid is longlisted for the 2021 Highland Book Prize
Iain Finlay will lead a 75 minute workshop, where participants will get the chance to apply a number of techniques to developing one of their own ideas. Ideas should be at an early stage of development. As a group, we will discuss, question and interrogate each other’s ideas in a safe space, with the aim of furthering the boundaries of your story’s world.
Please note, numbers for this workshop are limited.
When the body of a young woman is found on one of the Flannan Isles, clues lead D.I.Cameron and pathologist Kate St John to the island of St Kilda. But this is a St Kilda that was not abandoned and a community are still living there in isolation with a suspicion of all outsiders. Danger and intrigue intertwine throughout the book as the plot unfolds to an unexpected outcome.
Iain F. MacLeòid is from Ness on the Isle of Lewis. He has written 5 novels to date as well as much work on films and scripts for television and radio. He currently lives in the Isle of Skye where he works at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, The Gaelic College.
