Earlier this afternoon, I received an invitation to hold a workshop at the annual Creative Writing Conference for Senior Pupils in Edinburgh. It’s an annual event and this is my first one. I’m not joking when I tell you that I did a little jig in my living room. But it’s a huge honour to be asked, and this will be a huge personal and professional moment for me.
So I’d better make it a good experience for everyone! How do you host a workshop? I’ve never hosted one in my life. I’ve hosted events. Goodness, I nearly shut down a cafe after reading a story about gynaecology aloud while everyone chewed attentively on their breadsticks. Oh well. In all seriousness, I can’t wait for September. I’m going to do my best on behalf of the pupils.
