Read between the lines of women’s diaries in our collection to create your own fiction and poetry.

Creative Writing For Fearties: Dear Diary… Saturday 16th March, 1.30pm to 3.30pm, £2/Free, Women only*


Have you ever picked up someone else’s diary and been intrigued by the snippets of life within, while feeling just a tad guilty for reading something so personal? Well, here’s a guilt free invitation to read between the lines and do some creative writing using diaries in our collection. Look through the tiny 1922 journal of a party animal, the writing of a woman farmer in the 1930s, and the wartime diary of an ophthalmic nurse in far flung locations.


This workshop is for women only* and costs £2 full price. We offer free subsidised places for students, people on a low income, unemployed or those in receipt of benefit and Friends of GWL. Please book below or you can call us on 0141 550 2267. If you have booked a place and are no longer able to attend please let us know so that we can make your place available to someone else.

*All women-only events are inclusive of Trans and Intersex women, as well as non-binary and gender fluid people.



Glasgow Women’s Library is wheelchair accessible, with lifts to the first floor and the Mezzanine Floor. We have accessible toilets and all the bathrooms are individual closed stalls and are gender neutral. Our larger Events Space is fitted with an induction loop. A portable induction loop is also available. For paid events free companion tickets are available.
