Creative Writing Class on the Solway

Ann Lackie is running ‘A sense of place’: creative writing on a Solway saltmarsh: Saturday May 19th, 10am-4pm.


The saltmarshes of the Upper Solway change daily with the tides and weather, and are home to millions of minute animals, salt-tolerant plants, and thousands of feeding birds. How can we convey our experience of these special places in words? This workshop for practising and aspiring writers – fiction and non-fiction – will be led by novelist, creative writing tutor and shore-walker Ann Lingard, at the RSPB’s Campfield Marsh Reserve near Bowness-on-Solway.


The day will include a wander on the saltmarsh, followed by a session indoors in the Solway Wetlands Centre. Full details (including how to book, through Cumbria Wildlife Trust ) are on Ann’s Solway Shorewalker blog  


Please bring waterproof clothing and wellies. Tea and coffee will be provided at the indoor venue but bring your own lunch. Don’t forget a notebook and pen and camera!


This is a free event although a minimum donation of £5.00 to Cumbria Wildlife Trust or the RSPB would be appreciated.
