Creative Writing workshops: A unique way of interacting with the Hunterian Collection! (FREE)
Join us for a set of creative writing workshops where you will get a chance to interact with objects of the Hunterian Collection, write and discuss different approaches to writing from connections established with objects.
There are two kinds of workshops:
Giving Object a Voice:
Tell us what the object has seen, what’s its story, where they have been, who made them. This workshop gives you the opportunity to give voice to an object from the Hunterian Collection. You will interact with some objects carefully selected from the Pop Up Museum and the Writers at the Hunterian will show you different approaches on how to transform that initial burst of inspiration into a piece of writing.
April: Saturday 13th 10am-12pm, Saturday 20th 2pm-4pm, Saturday 27th 10am-12pm
Have you thought about the place an object has in a story or a poem? By interacting with objects from the Pop Up Museum we will guide you through different ways in which you can use the objects as part of a piece of your own writing. Let’s explore how a new element can inform your writing.
April: Saturday 13th 2pm-4pm, Saturday 20th 10am-12pm, Saturday 27th 2pm-4pm
The workshops take place on the following Saturdays: 13th, 20th and 27th of April at the seminar room in The Gilchrist Postgraduate Club. You can sign-up to one of each workshop. The pieces you create in the workshops can be submitted to the Creative Writing Competition.
All you need to do is register and attend, there are no fees! We recommend you sign up quickly, as the places are very limited. Register by emailing to email@example.com specifying which workshop you want to attend (date and time).

28th February/8pm/The Gilchrist Postgraduate Club
For this month only THE VERSE HEARSE will be taking place at THE GILCHRIST POSTGRADUATE CLUB. A different venue, but the same heady cocktail of assorted lyrical entertainments guaranteed (and although it’s at the postgrad club, ALL ARE WELCOME as usual). This month we’ve got two amazing poets lined up for you:
ANDREW PHILIP: Andrew’s first collection, ‘The Ambulance Box’ was published in 2009 by Salt. It follows two successful poetry pamphlets with HappenStance Press: ‘Tonguefire’ (2005) and ‘Andrew Philip: A Sampler’ (2008). His next book with Salt, ‘The North End of the Possible’ will be published later this year.
GRAEME SMITH: Rest-adverse poet and racket maker based in Leith, Graeme runs the fantastic monthly spoken word night CAESURA in Edinburgh and poetry imprint Goodnight Press. Those who have witnessed his thought-provoking and often euphoric performances (conclusory fist raised) know that Graeme’s poetry is not to be missed live.
Followed, as always, by the infamous VERSE HEARSE open mic session. See you all there!
