Kenneth Steven

Writing the Tay

Festival favourite, Kenneth Steven, joins us for a very special event - a chance to learn about writing poetry from an expert, introduced by Highland Book Prize. Kenneth is the author of 14 collections of poems, many of which are inspired by the wildscape of his native Highland Scotland. Saturday morning with Kenneth will ignite your creativity, taking your inspiration from the River Tay to create a piece of work. Whether you’re a beginner or already an accomplished writer, this workshop will help you craft your words.

The workshop is part of the Pitlochry Festival Theatre’s Shades of Tay project, that will see the creation of 50 artworks to celebrate the river, and the communities and people who live along it. Kenneth will read the best work as part of the official launch of the Poetry Competition (supported by the Highland Book Prize) later in the day.
