Ken Words Poetry Walk at Barhill Wood

Our ‘Ken Words’ writing project, in partnership with GCAT, is planning another of its very successful Poetry Walks this weekend. Each time, a local author or artist guides a small group of aspiring writers around a local place, helping them to gain inspiration from the landscape around them.

This Sunday, the 28th April, local poet and songwriter Alan McClure will guide the walk around Barhill Wood in Kirkcudbright, starting at 1:45pm. Barhill Wood is a very beautiful woodland which will provide plenty of inspiration for the walkers, not least from one of the other Galloway Glens projects based there – the Red Squirrel Hide and Outdoor Classroom. 

There are still a few places available to book, at £5 for the gentle one-hour walk, followed by a one-hour seated writing workshop. Book through the CatStrand on 01644 420 374, or directly with Jane on jane.kenwords@gmail.com. The Poetry Walking groups are always small and friendly groups, and no prior experience of writing is required. Come along if you can for what will certainly be a most uplifting and thoughtful afternoon.
