The sessions will be running on the last Wednesday of the month from Greenock Central Library , 2.30-3.30pm. There is no need to book sessions or read anything in advance, participants can just come along to listen to a story and poem and join in with the discussions in a relaxed, informal atmosphere with a cuppa on hand. All welcome.

The Writers Well

New Year, New You?

Once a month we’ll meet up in person on our Writer’s Well Walks, where we’ll share our writing and seek inspiration from the world around us. These short, gentle strolls will incorporate plenty of rest and reflection breaks and time for tea/coffee and writing.

These informal, fun sessions are open to anyone who lives in, works in or is otherwise connected with Inverclyde.
Register by 10.01.22 online at the link in the Other Websites section or pop into your local library.
Sessions run each Tuesday 11:00 - 12:00. Once registered you can attend each week or drop-in whenever suits.
