Courses on environmental and creative writing

Anthony Haynes writes: Last week I had the pleasure of meeting Edinburgh-based writer Juliet Wilson. I’ve followed Juliet on social media for some time now. In particular, Juliet runs two blogs — Crafty Green Poet and Juliet Wilson.

Juliet’s work focuses on the environment, creativity, and the links between the two. Below are details that Juliet has kindly provided concerning two forthcoming courses.

Environmental Writing is part of the Creative Writing Strand of the Office of Lifelong Learning at the University of Edinburgh. Starting on 16 April, the six-week course focuses on writing about nature and environmental issues and considers the environmental impacts of the publishing industry. To find out more and book a place visit:

‘Write Now!’ is the third in a series of creative writing courses offered at the Ripple Project, based in the Lochend and Restalrig Community Hub in Edinburgh. The eight week course is free and open to everyone in the local area, whatever their previous experience of creative writing and offers inspiration and the chance to meet with like-minded people. To find out more and book a place, contact the Ripple Project on 0131 554 0422.
