The 2020 Highland Book Prize Longlist series: Online Workshop with Elizabeth Reeder, author of novel, An Archive of Happiness
Ideas for Approaching Point of View and the Pleasure of Experimentation
In this one-hour session, which builds on Elizabeth’s talk at 5pm, we’ll get right down to doing some writing around different points of view. In a session that will combine discussion and writing, we’ll take some of our thinking on how different points of view work and we’ll turn it into some daring writing. This is a short workshop and there will be opportunity to talk about the writing you’ve done in the session, but no obligations to read it out!
We are running this as a ‘pay as you can’ event. It’s £8 to book a space, but subsidised and free spaces are available, just choose that option below when booking.
Elizabeth Reeder, originally from Chicago, has lived in Scotland for over twenty years – working and living in Glasgow and Strathspey. Her stories and experimental essays are widely published and broadcast. Her first novel, Ramshackle, was shortlisted for a Saltire Literary Award. She’s a MacDowell Fellow and a Senior Lecturer in Creative Writing at University of Glasgow.
This event is brought to you as part of a series celebrating the 2020 Highland Book Prize longlist. Over the next few months, Moniack Mhor will be running sessions with longlisted writers including workshops, individual and in-conversation talks. All will be delivered via Zoom and supported by a member of the Moniack Mhor/Highland Book Prize team.
This event is fully booked. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the waiting list.
