Currently we offer MAKING PIES – six workshops for the closet poet free to groups throughout Glasgow.

The aim of the series of six sessions is to equip poets with tools, develop their confidence to tinker with their work, and to try out new things in an encouraging environment. There is the option of hosting a local poetry event at the end of the series if circumstances permit.

Sessions are for up to 2 hours with a maximum of 6 participants, and can be monthly, weekly, over consecutive days, or throughout a single weekend, subject to leader availability.

Groups can meet online via Zoom, or face-to-face, subject to prevailing Covid restrictions. Groups wishing to meet face-to-face will need to provide the venue and comply with venue requirements.

The next MAKING PIES – six workshops for the closet poet begins at 6.30pm on Tuesdays, July 5th, 2022, up to and including August 9. The course is at The Wee Retreat, 2 Myrtle Grove, G42 8UQ and is fully booked. Future workshops will be posted here. Alternatively email us or, if organising a workshop for your own group, download the workshops enquiry form here.
