Scottish Association of Writers Weekend Conference

Well, once again members of Erskine Writers are home from another SAW weekend conference with a host of awards. What a great weekend from start to finish: competition adjudications; entertaining speakers; informative workshops and seminars; evening of drama sketches from that particular competition; disco and poetry penthouse.

Not to mention the eating, chatting with friends old and new, and fun! Most of us came home inspired and raring to get on with writing, once we recover from the blinding tiredness.

We are especially delighted that one of our newer members, Morag, did so well at her first SAW conference. And that postal member, Bill, was also mentioned. Awards were presented by Crime Novelist and Honorary President, Alana Knight.
