Mixing the Colours: Creative Writing Workshop

16th November, 2013 at 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Magi GibsonThe Federation of Writers Scotland and Glasgow Women’s Library have teamed up with writer, Magi Gibson to offer this free workshop to women.

Whether you feel you were ever affected by sectarianism or not, you probably have stories to tell, poems to write. Did you ever see an Orange March or go to a Celtic game? Are there ‘mixed marriages’ in your family?

What did it mean to you to grow up as a Protestant or a Catholic girl in Scotland?

Scottish writing has stories, poems and dramas that explore the Catholic/Protestant experience. It’s part of our history, part of our culture, but women’s voices are all but silent.

Glasgow Women’s Library through its Mixing The Colours project aims to uncover the thoughts, voices and experiences of Scottish women.

Not only will this workshop help you get writing on these themes, but what you write will be considered for publication in a top-quality book, alongside established Scottish women writers.

Don’t worry if you think you have nothing to say, or you think you have stories to tell but don’t know how. That’s what the workshop is about. So come and join us!


This event is free of charge. Please click here to book your free place(s) or contact us on 0141 550 2267.
