Janice Galloway Masterclass: How Do We Write Now

  • Dunbar Townhouse ( council room) Dunbar High Street Dunbar, Scotland, EH42 United Kingdom (map)

A workshop/ talkshop for writers with some experience to discuss, talk through and teach each other about the contemporary voices called How We Write Now. 

Do bring along a favourite short paragraph (even a few sentences) from a favourite book of your own to help share what you liked about it or learned from it.

Do you have a favourite work by a woman?

A book you love for itself alone or because of the impression it made on you as a youngster?

A book in another language to your own, poetry or prose, something fresh-off-the-printer or something else entirely?

I’d like us to be able to share ideas of how we live and work now, and whether we choose to write or it chooses us.
