Anatomy and Village Pub Theatre

I led a workshop for Anatomy this morning on Writing for Performance that went beautifully and was so pleased with the writing that came out of it.  Thanks so much for those who came and took part, and to the wonderful Anatomy folks for asking me to be a part of it.  Do check out the evening itself tomorrow night.  Sadly I won’t be there but happily I’ll be doing some performing of my own at the Village Pub Theatre in Leith; reading out my own work and some by the artist Catherine Street, alongside a lot of other exciting work.  Hope to see you there, or that you can get to Anatomy.
