Celebrate Your Story – Workshop with Samina Chaudry
Tuesday 4 May, 2021 2 p.m. –4.30 p.m.
As part of this year’s Your Stories writing project, Scottish Book Trust is offering online workshops to help inspire you to write about Celebration.
Join Samina Chaudry, Next Chapter award winner, for a free online writing workshop on the theme of Celebration. Samina will be using her own story as part of the workshop, offering some different approaches you can take to get started with your own piece.
So if you have an idea for a story but aren’t quite sure where to start, come along and get inspired!
This workshop is part of Scottish Book Trust’s Your Stories project, which aims to get people all over Scotland writing true, personal stories. Every entry received will be featured on their website and a collection of favourites will be published in a free book, distributed across the country during Book Week Scotland 2021 (15-21 November).
This workshop will be hosted via Zoom. You will receive joining instructions via email prior to the workshop.
