Glasgow was home to many of the Scottish temperance movements of the 19th and 20th centuries. In this creative writing workshop, we’ll use a range of archived materials from these movements — such as newspaper clippings, photographs and pamphlets — as inspiration for our own creative writing about alcohol. All participants will have the option to submit their writing to a one-off online journal showcasing responses to the workshop. Open to everyone; no previous writing experience required.
This event is presented by the College of Arts at the University of Glasgow as part of the Being Human festival, in partnership with The Hunterian Associates Programme and the kind support of Maryhill Burgh Hall.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Alcohol in the Archives are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
