Dunbar’s wee festival of words is organised by Appletree Writers in association with North Light Arts and Dunbar Civic Week. It is a community initiative aiming to promote and celebrate local talent and also, to provide an opportunity for a new and unique experience for the people of Dunbar and for the many tourists and visitors to the area.
The festival is a two night promenade of poetry, prose and song. The festival is taking place in Dunbar’s Civic Week and will be part of its thriving programme of events. The wee festival will celebrate all the wonderful talent of our town as well as talent from further afield. http://dunbarliteraryfestival.co.uk/
They really hope that you will come and join them for what promises to be two nights of unique and magical experiences. The festival will take place on the evening of Monday 17th and Tuesday 18th June, full programme and tickets will be available from the beginning of April.
Appletree writers are also pleased to be offering, as part of the festival programme, a writing workshop with crèche on the Monday morning at the local library.

A writing workshop organised by Appletree Writers and to be run by our very own writing mum, Hannah Lavery and the poet and creative writing tutor Alice Mitchell. The workshop intends to explore experiences of motherhood as inspiration for creative writing. There will be lots of opportunities for you to write and share your work in a small supportive group aided by the delightful power of cake – maybe this will be the start of something!
Places will be limited so book early.
Booking opens on the 15th April.
