Creative Writing Workshops for Women

Devika Ponnambalam is writer and filmmaker who lives in Edinburgh. She has made a number of short films and is currently writing her first novel and making a short film. She is a graduate of the National Film and TV School and holds an MA in Creative Writing (Prose) from the University of East Anglia. She is facilitating three FREE Saturday morning creative writing workshops for women, and is specifically interested in encouraging those within the BAME community, though all women are welcome.

Each session  will begin with a short discussion around a piece of published prose after which a theme will be set for the start of the writing challenge. It will be a dedicated time to work on your ideas within the workshop. The goal is to explore your own voice or perhaps the voice of a character in history whose story you would like to tell.

The workshops will be held at the offices of The Saltire Society which is off the High Street in central Edinburgh. Deatils of location can be found HERE.


Workshops will be help on:

Saturday 30 March 11am to 12.30pm

Saturday 5 April 11am to 12.30pm

Saturday 12 April 11am to 12,30pm


Book your space HERE


Devika Ponnambalam was a recipient of a Research and Development grant from Creative Scotland in 2018. She is traveled to Tahiti last September to research the main character in her book and the world in which the story is set. She will share her journey and experience.
