Scotland's Stories: Adventure – Writing workshops

As part of this year's Scotland’s Stories: Adventure writing project, we’ve teamed up with three incredibly talented authors to help inspire you to get writing about your own adventures.

Each author will be delivering two writing workshops, sharing some fun, practical exercises you can use to get started with your own story. They will also be sharing their own stories of Adventure during the workshops

So, if you're struggling for inspiration and fancy picking the brain of one of these wonderful authors, sign-up for a workshop now!
