Writing our languages

16th April 2015

As part of Talkfest in Glasgow this coming week there will be an interesting session called In Your Own Words hosted by Catriona Lexy Campbell and Morna Young who are both writers working largely in Scottish Gaelic and North East Scots (i.e. Doric). The two playwrights have a number of talents including poetry, composition, theatre performance, music and song. They will be speaking to their audience about Scotlands native languages, the experience of writing in our native languages, and what this can offer, including advice for others interested in developing their own skills. There will also be some discussion of the art of storytelling which has a long and well developed history in Scotland.


In Your Own Words will be at 2.30pm, Saturday 25 April 2015 in the Changing House, floor one of the Tron, 63 Trongate, Glasgow. Tickets cost 3. If you would like to book a ticket or find out more please visit the website at or call the Tron Box Office on 0141 552 4267.
