NEW VENUE - Weegie Wednesday Glasgow's Writing Network
Wed 18 July 2018
Please note, this event has moved to The Project Cafe, 134 Renfrew Street.
Following the fire at Glasgow School of Art and the O2 ABC music venue, the Centre for Contemporary Arts remains within the cordoned area in Garnethill. At this time, there is no set date for re-entry, and the centre expects to remain closed for the duration of July and August.
We are working with our programme partners who had scheduled events throughout this period. Details of new venues and cancellations are here.
Weegie Wednesday began in January 2007 in Glasgow to provide an opportunity for writers, publishers, comic book writers and artists, poets, screen writers, drama writers, booksellers, librarians, TV and film people, journalists, marketing people, creative writing students and anyone else with an interest to get together socially once a month to talk about books, writing and publishing and all points related.
The spirit of Weegie Wednesday is to promote networking, welcome new people, and get people meeting. Our steering committee do their best to introduce new people, but the best thing to do is introduce yourself to people and not be shy. We try never to have cliques and to be friendly and welcoming. There is a real mix of people who attend – long term members and new people. Some drop in twice or once a year, and some come every month – we are always happy to welcome anyone with an interest in writing and the creative industries.
We host short talks at the events from key, relevant speakers about their area of expertise, and to give information, their story or share their inspiration.
In this July meeting we welcome Marc Pye, writer of 2 novels and 3 feature films, but known for as a screenwriter for almost a host of drama, Eastenders, Holby, Waterloo Rd, The Street, to name only a few. Marc is delighted to pass on his experiences.
