Creative reading and writing workshops
With poet and writer Marjorie Lotfi

Free to join -10 places available

This autumn we are delighted to be partnering with Open Book again for two reading and creative writing workshops led by poet Marjorie Lotfi – the first will take place at Cample and the second will take place online.

Together you will read and discuss passages of fiction and poetry selected by Marjorie in response to Tonico Lemos Auad’s exhibition Unknown to the world at CAMPLE LINE. Then you can try your hand at creative writing in response to the readings.

No prior reading, experience or expertise necessary.

Marjorie Lotfi is a poet and a facilitator of creative writing. She founded and runs Open Book, which promotes reading groups for the vulnerable and for adults in the community and is the current Chair of Trustees for the Wigtown Book Festival and Vice-chair of StAnza Poetry Festival.

The online workshop will take place on Zoom. A link will be emailed to you upon booking.

Face Coverings

We ask that you continue to wear a face covering (unless exempt) when attending one of our in-person workshops, in line with current Scottish Government restrictions, particularly at times when you are moving around the space or between spaces. You are able to remove your face covering when eating or drinking


We are currently booking our indoors workshops at 50-60% capacity, particularly where they involve working at a table, to allow for some distancing. 

Test and Protect

We will ask for contact details for one person per booking, including a telephone number, for the purposes of Test and Protect
