Making your words work

This October, we’ll be running a three-day residential for Care Experienced Young People or Care Leavers. Roseanne Watt and Kevin MacNeil will lead you through some simple writing exercises, looking at how film can make your words come alive and how best to form the story that you want to tell. 

Roseanne Watt is a poet, filmmaker and musician from Shetland. She is currently poetry editor for The Island Review and was the winner of the 2015 Outspoken Poetry Prize (Poetry in Film) and runner-up in the 2018 Aesthetica Creative Writing Award. She lives and works in Edinburgh.

Kevin MacNeil is an award-winning writer from the Outer Hebrides. He is a novelist, screenwriter, lyricist, playwright poet,  writing mentor and
lecturer in creative writing at Stirling University.
