The National Library of Scotland and Glasgow Women’s Library are pleased to offer this free, online creative writing session in response to the forthcoming National Library exhibition, ‘Petticoats and Pinnacles’. This display will feature pioneering women mountaineers and travellers, as well as women who have explored mountain environments through words and images.

‘Petticoats and Pinnacles’: Creative Writing Webinar, Saturday 12th December, 11am to 12pm, Online, Women only

Whether you’re a creative writer, creative climber, or have never picked up a pen or piton, this aims to be a fun and stimulating session to try out creative writing techniques in response to the women and items featured in the exhibition.

The format of this will be a ‘webinar’, where you can sit back and relax as you watch and listen to the prompts and take part in the activities without being viewed by other attendees, though you will have access to the ‘Chat’ function to comment and ask questions.


The event is free and is for women only*. Please book via this Eventbrite link which is hosted by National Library Scotland.

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


This session takes place via an online link. If you have any concerns about how this will work for you, please do get in touch and we’ll do all we can to support you in joining the session.
