With thanks to Catriona Yule.

A new creative writing group is being launched in Aberdeenshire.
Grassic Gibbon Writers Group has been set up by Grassic Gibbon Centre manager, Isabella Williamson, and will be led by local poet, playwright and short story writer Catriona Yule.

The meetings kick off on Friday 17 February at 10.30 am and will run for six weeks initially. Each informal session will support and encourage new writers through workshop exercises and constructive feedback. Anyone is welcome to come along.

Catriona told Aberdeen Voice: 

“I’m absolutely delighted to be involved with this writing group and feel that this is an exciting opportunity for any budding writer wanting to learn more and share their experiences. The Grassic Gibbon Centre plays a crucial part in maintaining the heritage of the Mearns area and in keeping Lewis Grassic Gibbon’s legacy alive. It seems only fitting that it should have its own writing group to continue his passion. He was a very gifted writer who achieved an incredible output in his short life,”
