Edinburgh Sense of Place

Well, my novel, 'Anna's Ghost' (working title) is more or less finished. So I'll be returning to tutoring Creative Writing - mainly poetry in 2010. One can get so tired of the sight of a screen! It will be nice to meet up with former and new students again.

So here's advance publicity:

Edinburgh Sense of Place: Creative Writing course.

From 27th Jan for 10 sessions. Wednesdays from 10.30am-12.30pm (No session on 10th Feb) Visits round Edinburgh to places of historical, or cultural interest as springboards for poetry or short prose writing, alternating with workshop sessions (venue tbc) to read out work produced.

This term visits will be to mostly new venues including the Scottish National Museum, Chambers St., the Writers Museum (special reference to R.L. Stevenson), The Royal College of Surgeons' Museum, the Temperance Palm House, Royal Botanical Gardens and the Traquair Mansfield Centre (to see the murals by Phoebe Traquair).

We usually have an optional lunch together after. All very convivial and friendly.
