11 May @ 15:00 - 16:30 BST

Hybrid Hybrid Event

During Mental Health Awareness Week, we’re focusing on connecting members via our community activities taking place during the week in person and online. Our local groups are one way you can join in with SoA activities to strengthen your professional networks, and this event is aimed at supporting your mental and physical wellbeing, too.

Join the Scottish Islands Group, in conjunction with Westside Writers, for an informal meet-up at Shetland Library on Wednesday 11 May from 3pm – 4.30pm. Meet fellow authors and chat about what’s on your mind in this friendly, supportive session.

We’ll start by chatting in pairs to get to know one another before putting the kettle on for a brew and cake.

Open to all writers, whether published or not – the aim is for us get together after two years of meetings and events online. Please feel free to bring along a friend.

We’ll meet at Shetland Library, Lower Hillhead, Lerwick, Shetland ZE1 0EL.
