Workshops, classes and retreats

My world is becoming what I always dreamed of. Notebooks of scrawls on every surface, diaries of classes filling, novel one filed, novel 2 in a box, novel 3 in note form. In order to buy the time to take novel 2 out of that box, onto the desk to be read, shaped, edited, I teach others all the writing techniques, insights, tips and tricks I have learned over the past 15 years with HI-Arts, Emergents, Scottish Book Trust et al. I am nervous, some days overwhelmed but always, in every moment, utterly grateful to everyone who supported me in my journey here. Now please help me sustain this…

Find Your Inner Writer, Findhorn is up and running. You are welcome to join us in Findhorn village every other Friday morning at 10am sharp. It’s a simple but powerful and quite unique exercise.

Above The Strandline is a writing retreat for women on Isle Martin. I will be a guest tutor. This is a weekend workshop on a remote island off the north west coast of Scotland. There’s no electricity and no wifi. Bliss. Our lead tutor is the truly amazing LG Thomson – here’s a link for more details.

NOWSE is my self publishing/ self promotion strand. Whether you are a holiday cottage owner, a tradesman, an artist or you know you have books to write, you need to use the internet to build your on line presence. NOWSE is the tools; the spanners, cogs, wires and other assorted self publishing necessities. You can join us in the Emergents meeting room on Church Street, Inverness alternate Mondays from September 2017 – and yes, in order to make the most of your online presence, you need to find your voice, so we do a bit of that too!
Branding, blogging, Vlogging, meditations, exercises, how to Tweet, why to Tweet and SEO, it’s all just NOWSE.

If you would like to hire me for your group, then the fab folks at Scottish Book Trust have organised the Live Literature database which makes funding available so that authors can travel. Just contact Kay Bohan – and here’s the link
