In celebration of the European Lunar Symposium’s arrival in Dumfries, join celebrated author and academic Lania Knight (Remnant, There is Fire Here) for a practical workshop on writing about the moon and nature.. You’ll be given prompts and techniques and over the course of two hours you’ll build up your own original piece of written prose. This is a practical writing workshop, please bring pens and paper.

In the evening at the Dalry Town Hall, we’ll be having a social open-mic night with the parallel prose class, where you’ll be invited to read or perform your piece for your co-participants and participants of the prose workshop. This is free for workshop participants, you don’t need to book a separate ticket.
