The man taking over Cumbernauld Theatre’s resident writer’s group hopes to provide a mutual learning environment which helps budding wordsmiths hone their skills.

Sandy Cunningham (41), from Carbrain, has long been a part of the local writing scene, and also recently taught a creative writing course at Cumbernauld College.

“I hope to bring a bit of structure to the meetings and help people focus on their personal goals. I want everyone to have the chance to read their work to the group and get constructive criticism,” he said.

The first session of the writers’ group is tomorrow (Thursday) at 7.30pm. Membership is £20 for eight fortnightly sessions, advance booking by calling 7328887 is recommended.
