Learn the write stuff from Phyl

A BEARSDEN author is going to run a creative writing course for aspiring writers in the area.

Phyl Wright from Deepdene Road, Westerton, has written two books for adults ‘Nobody I Know’ and ‘Somebody Maybe’, and a children’s book ‘The Band of Loren’ under the pseudonym of Tess Dali.

Phyl (59) said: “I only started writing about six years ago which just goes to show that you can start at any age.

“I thoroughly enjoyed writing for children and I’m thinking about doing a sequel for ‘The Band of Loren.’

“My course will help people with structure, characterisation and plot as well as give advice on the pitfalls to avoid and how to get published.”

The course has been arranged through the East Dunbartonshire Council and will run on Monday evenings from 7pm to 8.30pm, from September 3 to October 22 in Westerton Lesser Hall, 82 Maxwell Avenue.

It costs £5 per lesson - £40 for the full eight week course. To book, call Phyl Wright on 0141 931 9048 or 07758 773 795.
