Novelist Michel Faber will lead the Young Writers’ Café for young people in Inverness and surrounding areas in July.

Do you REALLY want to be a writer? Novelist Michel Faber talks you through the rewards, rejections, challenges, weirdnesses and dangers. 
Michel will be talking about the different, equally valid reasons why people want to be writers, the criticism that you may render yourself vulnerable to, the pros and cons of online communities and writers’ groups and dealing with rejection.

No need for experience, just bring along a playful mind and pen and paper! Drinks and snacks provided.
