Join local artist Andrea Wotherspoon for some Creative Writing Workshops here at LAC!

Andrea Wotherspoon (she/her) is a writer based in Thurso. Her short stories have been published in The People’s Friend, Woman’s Weekly and Take a Break Fiction Feast. She was a Caithness Artist in Residence with Lyth Arts Centre in 2022, collaborating with young people in and around Thurso on a project called Where Cats Glow Green, exploring the legacy and future of the Dounreay nuclear site.

Her writing is very much inspired by the Caithness landscape and its history, although she also loves to add a hint of the supernatural. Out with writing, her hobbies include coastal walks, rock gigs, shamanism and soundbaths.

Workshops will take place on 2nd, 9th, 16th & 23rd of November (Thursdays).

These workshops are free to attend but booking is required – booking is for all four sessions – participants are expected to attend all 4 sessions where possible.

Age guidance: 13-19

These workshops are part of the Caithness Young Creatives programme.
