The Magic & Power of Story: a writing workshop with Mara Menzies

Friday 19 November 2021

A full-day writing workshop (including a lunch break) by writer and performance storyteller Mara Menzies during Book Week Scotland 2021


Join writer and performance storyteller Mara Menzies in a full-day workshop exploring the weaving of thoughts, ideas and memories into narrative. Drawing from her dual Kenyan/Scottish heritage, she explores how she takes inspiration from personal history, global events and the world around her to craft stories that speak to wider themes. With a fusion of storytelling performance, solo and group practical exercises, we conclude with a creative writing exercise led by author Sonali Misra.
