30 March 2019, ‘Hooked’: Young Readers & Writers Day at Wigtown

I’ll be running one of the workshops for Hooked at The Stove, 100 High Street, Dumfries DG1 2BN, from 1-2.30 p.m. on Saturday, 30 March 2019.

Hooked is a day-festival for young people aged 14-25 who are passionate about literature and the arts, encouraging creative collaboration with writers, illustrators, visual artists and performers in a series of workshops. It is delivered by Wigtown Festival Company’s young adult team and run in conjunction with The Stove Network.

Come join this wonderful opportunity to try a new creative practice, develop your existing talent, learn about other opportunities in the region and meet your peers!

You can attend for the whole day or select individual events. Advanced booking is recommended, and a full-day ticket includes lunch.
