Current and Forthcoming Workshops


City of Edinburgh Council Adult Education programme

You can access the whole range of Edinburgh Council adult education classes here.

I regularly run creative writing classes and guided walks as part of this programme, but only generally use social media to advertise the ones that don't sell out really quickly!

Advance notice: I'll be teaching a 10 week Monday evening creative writing class at Boroughmuir High School starting 7pm, 23 September and a 10 week Tuesday evening beginners creative writing class at Tynecastle Community High starting 24 September. The updated council community education programme will be online from 7 August for people to book for next term.

Past Workshops

I've also facilitated 'creative writing inspired by nature workshops' for a range of organisations including Gorgie City Farm, Sharing Secrets Festival (Dalry Primary School) and Vogrie Country Park.

I've also lead guided nature walks for the Woodland Trust, Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) and Outlook the mental health adult education programme of City of Edinburgh Council. 
 
I'm available on a freelance basis to offer guided nature walks and workshops on creative writing, particularly poetry or writing inspired by nature. Email Juliet.M.WilsonATgmailDOTcom for more information.


Poetry Readings

I've given public readings of my poetry and short stories including at Meadows Festival, Silencio, Ten Red, Edinburgh International Book Festival and during my time as poet in residence at the Forest Cafe. Feel free to contact me (Juliet.M.WilsonATgmailDOTcom) if you're looking for an environmentally engaged poet.
