Writing workshop heads to Galloway

FANCY yourself as the next Ian Rankin? Feel that you could make your mark in the ever popular thriller book market? well, a great opportunity to get top tips from one of the best writers in Scotland is coming to Galloway.

Tartan Noir crime author Lin Anderson will be running a two-hour workshop for writers in Newton Stewart on Saturday 6th April. Lin is the author of the Rhona MacLoud series along with screenplays and non fiction books. The crime writing workshop is being held at the Creebridge House Hotel in Minnigaff between 2pm and 4pm.

As the workshop is being held as part of the Dumfries &Galloway Rural Literature Development Hub the cost to any writer living within the region is just £5. This price, which includes refreshments, also applies to any writer living outwith the region but who is a member of a Dumfries and Galloway writers’ group. The cost for anyone outside the region is £25.

The event has been organised by the Wigtown-based BookTown Writers group and spokeswoman Anni Telford said: “We are absolutely thrilled that Lin has agreed to come to Newton Stewart. This is a marvellous opportunity with one of Scotland’s leading crime writers but places are limited.”
