Book Trust looking for new writers

Budding writers from the district are being invited by the Scottish Book Trust to attend a free writing workshop on April 23 at The Mitchell Library.

The event is part of the charity’s new Secrets and Confessions initiative which runs from March 30 to June 22.

People of all ages from across Scotland are invited to submit personal pieces of writing, which can be anything up to 1000 words long, about their own secret or confession.

They can be written in a variety of different forms, such as a story, poem, song lyrics or even a diary entry about your life.

To book a place on the free workshop, phone 0131 524 0170 or email frances.campbell@scottishbooktrust.com.
