Come and join us at Abriachan Forest Trust Classroom for a fun and informal afternoon taking inspiration from our surroundings to get writing. Ken Cockburn, Moniack Mhor Jessie Kesson Fellow 2020, will lead the workshop providing advice, ideas, tips and techniques to help you create a wonderful piece of poetry or prose. This afternoon workshop is suitable for anyone over the age of 16, whether you are just beginning to write (or maybe it is even your first time!) or already frequently find yourself putting pen to paper (or fingertips to keyboard). This workshop is free to attend, but spaces are limited. To book, please either email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01463 741 675.
