On Monday 11th July Helen Lynch, a noted local author and lecturer in Medieval Literature and Creative Writing at Kings College, University of Aberdeen, held a wonderfully interesting and creative workshop for member of Huntly Writers and guests. She used as her theme her successful collection of short stories, The Elephant and the Polish Question, based on her experiences whilst teaching at the University of Lodz, Poland.

She has a wide body of writing details some of which may be found at the websites below



Huntly Writers are most grateful to Helen for her inspiring workshop and the Scottish Book Trust who sponsored her visit.
