Event Details

Join Paisley Book Festival’s Writer-in-Residence, Imogen Stirling (Sky Arts, BBC, Neu! Reekie!), for a free online creative writing workshop series. Together, we will use simple writing exercises, discussion, poetry readings and storytelling to explore how words can be used as a means of expression, mindfulness and fun. With a view to looking forwards to more hopeful times than 2020, we will consider ways to imagine our own radical new futures and what we can learn from this tumultuous year. After having played around with various poetic techniques throughout the workshops, each participant will be encouraged to create a short piece of writing that can be edited into a collective ballad and presented during one of the Festival’s online events.

Intended as a space for anyone with an interest in words to tell their stories, these workshops will give the opportunity to experiment with different writing styles, free the mind and get thoughts onto paper. Open to all levels, with complete beginners very welcome!”

The work created throughout these workshops will be edited together by Imogen into one full collective poem, ready to be presented online at a Paisley Book Festival event.
