Event description
Walking & Writing sessions facilitated by Brian Whittingham

About this event

A series of guided walks in which we will explore the social fabric of the park, where we will walk, talk, read, write and take photographs of paths less-travelled, that will allow us to dispel self-imposed limitations.

Bring your own writing materials … oh, and your CAMERA!

All walks will leave from Lord Kelvin's statue at across from the bandstand on Kelvin Way.

The walks are suitable for people with limited walking, and wheelchair users, but wheelchair users MUST be accompanied during the walk by a support person.

There are some slight hills to negotiate.

If bad weather is forecast, we may postpone the walk until the following day (Friday). If this is the case, we will aim to give you 48 hours notice.

Social distancing rules will be in place.

Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear for walking and the weather.

If you or any members of your household are displaying symptoms of Covid-19, please do not attend.

In 2011, he was visiting professor of creative writing at Seattle University, and lectured for 16 years in creative writing in the further education sector in Glasgow. He currently holds the post of Renfrewshire's Tannahill Makar. He has published ten collections of poems, the most recent being WALKING BETWEEN WORLDS by Red Squirrel Press.
