Creative Writing Summer School in Shetland

June 16, 2011

A lovely creative writing course which our pals at Shetland Arts and Fiddle Frenzy wanted you to know about…

‘Creative Writing Summer School in Shetland – Sunday 7 to Sunday 14 August 2011

Poet Jen Hadfield is offering a week of writing workshops and one-to-ones during Shetland Arts’ summer fiddle school. You don’t need to be a fiddler to take part, but if you like folk music, you’ll thrive in this atmosphere: as a participant in the writing summer school, you can still attend the fiddle concerts, and the cultural trips to contemporary craft-workers, natural, historical and archeological sites. Previous trips have included visits to a working salmon farm and the studio of a contemporary textile artist, days in the islands of Whalsay and Yell; and there are further opportunities to drop into workshops on painting and Fair Isle knitting. Open to writers of all levels of confidence.
