Reading and Creative Writing Group

Open Book

At Open Book sessions people meet online via Zoom for shared reading and creative writing.  Led by poet Jen Hadfield, selected stories and poems are shared by reading them aloud before discussing them and doing some creative writing.  In an Open Book group there is no need to read in advance.  Everyone hears the story or poem for the first time at the session.  You don’t need to have any experience of writing creatively to come along and you only read or share what you write if you wish to.  We aim for an atmosphere that is both relaxed and supportive.  The sessions are open to ages 16+.

Free - places limited - please sign up by contacting: marghie.west@shetland.gov.uk
