A very special reading and discussion with some of Glasgow’s most celebrated writers, all of whom were encouraged early on by workshop pioneer Philip Hobsbaum. Join poet Liz Lochhead (Scots Makar 2011-2016), Marcella Evaristi (playwright, screenwriter) and Bernard Maclaverty (novelist, short story writer and screenwriter) for an open house of creativity. The event will also explore literature, poetry and the value of the contemporary writers’ group. It will also invite contributions on a postcard from the audience!

Linked workshops will run with local writing groups at Glasgow Women’s Library, University of Glasgow Special Collections and The Mitchell Library.
