Saturday 28th September 2019 1.30 – 4.00 at Cove Park


Writing about fantastic beasts, and birds, and insects, and leaves with Garry MacKenzie


What is it like to be a fox, or a fish, or an eagle, or an oak tree? In our September Saturday Studio we will discover how to write about the world around us – animals, birds, insects and plants. Having recently completed an Emerging Writer Residency, poet Garry MacKenzie will help you to see the world from another creature’s point of view. We will imagine how other creatures might speak, describe the natural world using all of the senses, and explore some of the techniques which writers use to bring their imaginations to life. 


Some of the workshop will take place outdoors, in the grounds of Cove Park, so please bring a coat!


Drinks and some fruit will be provided 


This free workshop is open to all young people in primary school. We are able to help with transport if required.
