Please check out our Events Page and perform a search to see if there are similar upcoming events.

A series of writing workshops where we will explore our relationships with place. Come along to one workshop, or the whole series!

The way we each experience places can be vastly different – our unique emotions, knowledge, memories and company can all alter how we connect to the land. What and who we’re in company with shapes how we connect to a landscape.

With this as a starting point, writer, Elizabeth Reeder, will be hosting a series of writing workshops exploring the idea of companionship.

The workshops will explore what it might mean to have a companion species, or to be accompanied by a question, or to accompany someone with different knowledge of a place than you have.

And we’ll do some writing. The writing is for yourself and you’ll be under no obligation to share. (Although, we are considering collecting stories for those people who are interested in sharing them.)

No previous writing experience is necessary, and all ages* and abilities very welcome. *under-18s must be accompanied by an adult.

These workshops are free, but places are limited. Please sign up to reserve a space.

Tuesday 12th April, 6pm-8pm, with an optional pre-workshop outdoor activity at 4.30pm.

Wednesday 13th April, 12midday. Elizabeth will be sitting at the Loch and writing. There is an open invitation to turn up and join her! (no booking necessary)

Thursday 14th April, 6pm – 8pm, with an optional pre-workshop outdoor activity at 4.30pm. A Writing workshop with Amanda Thomson and Elizabeth Reeder using Amanda’s book A Scots Dictionary of Nature as the basis for discussions and writing!
