Join Glasgow Women’s Library for this fantastic creative writing workshop exploring the legacies of women who have passed through Edinburgh’s historic Riddles’ Court from the 1500s to present day, and using our words to bring their voices back into the 21st century.

Really unique, enjoyable, and relevant to what I love to write about – participant on previous Women of Riddles’ Court creative writing workshop
