Where and when
There are two meetings per week during school terms, one in Inverbervie in the Bervie School Common Room on a Monday night and one in Stonehaven in the Community Centre Lounge on Thursday. Both meetings begin at 7:00 pm
Meetings take the form of:
- a mixture of stimuli presented by the tutor (which may be in the form of exercises or examining how a particular writer has dealt with a topic or utilised a given form/technique)
- discussion and shared critique of work presented to the group (NB For new writers, particularly, there is no pressure to present work until the individual feels ready to do so)
- Some of the meetings are given over to workshop style writing.
Several times a year all day workshops are held with visiting writers
