Imagined Spaces(this will open in a new window), a reading and writing project based in Dundee with activities that reach out all over the world, is hosting a workshop in partnership with Catalina Rowing(this will open in a new window) to turn the delights of being on the water into words.
Sign up for rowing tasters throughout November at your nearest participating local club (this will open in a new window)if you haven't already rowed in a skiff. Then join us for a free online reading and writing workshop on Saturday 20 November from 14-16:00 to transform your experiences into writing.
The reading and writing workshop will be held online via Zoom. The rowing tasters are offered at the discretion of participating local Scottish Coastal Rowing Association (SCRA) clubs, which are found all over Scotland. Please contact your local SCRA club for information on rowing tasters and accessibility.
This event is being hosted as part of Book Week Scotland and The Scottish Coastal Rowing Association's RowAround Scotland(this will open in a new window) 2021 celebrations.
'Rowing in a boat with four others in purposeful activity is a marvellous exercise in bonding as a crew together in the part of riverscape that we inhabit.' – Dai John (Captain, Catalina Rowing at Wormit Boating Club)
'We want to introduce the idea that books and the active life go hand in hand; we are committed to using writing to grow trust in the imaginative life, to build confidence in literary and literacy skills.' – Kirsty Gunn (Novelist, Essayist and Imagined Spaces co-founder).
