Sandstorms, Swimming and Stories: Creative Writing Workshop.

By June 29th, 2021No Comments
A photo album with a collection of photos of a lightning storm, swimming and a dessert.
Draw inspiration from mystery photographs in the museum’s collection to create your own short story.

Can you imagine what it would be like to get stuck in a desert sandstorm, fly an aeroplane, or swim in the Dead Sea?


The Devil’s Porridge Museum contains countless old photographs from all around the world. The only thing is we don’t know much about them … but we can imagine what stories the images could contain!


Join us at our creative writing workshop run by local writer Kerrie McKinnel, and create your own short story using these images and more as inspiration.


Suitable for young people with big imaginations.


Kerrie McKinnel is a writer, graduate from the University of Glasgow’s MLitt Creative Writing, and Events Manager for Lockerbie Writers group. She has run a number of successful writing workshops and events. You can find out more about her on her website:
