COMMUNITY WRITER/POET SESSIONS IN 5 AREAS ACROSS THE CITY
Glasgow Arts* offers writer/poet sessions across the 5 areas of the city to different creative writing and book groups. This programme of work has been made possible through partnership funding from Live Literature Scotland, with the aim to promote creative reading amongst different communities.
Some of the writers that have kindly facilitated sessions included:
- Bernard MacLaverty
- Jess Smith
- Margaret Thomson Davis
- Laura Marney
- John Binnie
- Linda Strachan
- Tom Leonard
- Valerie Thornton
- Tawona Aithole
The writers have been warmly received and Arts Development is appreciative of support from colleagues in libraries, community learning and development, schools and other voluntary organisations for making this happen. We hope to develop this work further during 2010 with the possibility of linking in to the Aye Write Community Programme 2010.
