WORDS – Writing Cafe and Workshop

Are you aged 12-25?  Do you like to write? Or share ideas about your favourite book, TV series or film?


We get together once a month at Waterstones in the Eastgate Shopping Centre, where together with a writer, we work on stories, film scripts, poems, song lyrics, journals . . . You don’t need to have a work in progress, you don’t need to have done anything like this before. Just bring a pen and some paper, and whoever is running the session will keep you right about what you’re writing, working on inspiration, character creation, plot, language and much more besides.

Oh. And there will be cake.

The Café runs from 5pm-6.30pm upstairs in Waterstones, Eastgate Shopping Centre, Inverness. The sessions are free and there is no need to book. Just turn up. We hope to see you there.
