Event description
Shared Reading and Creative Writing in response to art

About this event

Join Open Book and the Stills Gallery for writing in response to art.

We'll be reading stories and poems aloud, and using them to create our own writing in a gentle, guided session led by poet Sam Tongue.

Join Open Book and Stills once a month on Thursdays, 10.30-12 noon. January's session will now run ONLINE.

Open Book aims to be a safe space for all our participants and Lead Readers. This means our groups should be a place in which everyone feels welcome, respected and comfortable. We ask that you follow CARE (confidentiality, attention, respect, enjoy) and the Safe Spaces Framework each time you join a session. You can read the Space Spaces Framework here.

No experience necessary. Ages 16+.

Please note: due to demand we ask that you please only book two (2) creative writing sessions per month. Bookings are monitored and any additional creative writing bookings will be cancelled.

Organiser Open Book

Organiser of Open Book and Stills Gallery Creative Writing Group

We organise and run weekly shared reading sessions for a diverse range of community and public participants across Scotland. Part of a book and a poem are read aloud during these relaxed and informal sessions, with an Open Book Lead Reader on hand to help guide the discussion. We regularly run creative writing sessions for our readers, using the material the group is reading as inspiration to create new writing.
