Event description
Somewhere between a workshop and a roundtable, this discussion group focuses on writing about bodies and invites audience participation.

About this Event

This event takes place in Logan Hall at St Stephens

Two widely-published writers intrigued by the form and politics of the human body, Camilla Grudova and Heather Parry, share their inspiration, recommendations and techniques in this informal event.

From fear of the body to uncanny representations, this is for any writer interested in the figure in fiction. All levels of writing experience welcome.

Her story "Waxy" won the 2017 Shirley Jackson Award for Best Novelette.

About the venue

St Stephens, Edinburgh

St Stephens in Stockbridge is one of the most instantly recognisable buildings in Edinburgh's New Town, and is just across the road from our other festival venue St Vincent's. Once a church, St Stephens is now home to arts and learning, with many recitals of music and dance taking place here - it's even transformed into an impressive Fringe venue in August.

We are delighted to use this historic building as part of our festival: the Muir Hall will be home to author talks and our Small Press Pop-Up Bookshop, the Logan Room will be for roundtable discussions and children's activities. We regret that this venue is not wheelchair accessible.
