Written in the Archives
Any (and every) writer should be aware of the riches held in archives around the country – ideas, inspiration, information and motivation can all be found there, and this applies to writers of poetry, of prose fiction and of non-fiction.
During the evening we’ll be discussing the launch of The Carnoustie Golf Club (incontrovertibly one of the top ten courses in the world), a book based on material held by the Archive at the University of Dundee.
We’ll be discussing the writing of The Carnoustie Golf Club with the author, Donald Ford and other club members. We’ll also talk about a whole string of books which took advantage of the riches on offer in the University Archive, including Joseph Lee: Poems from the Great War and Eddie Small’s Mary Lily Walker 1853-1913: Forgotten Visionary of Dundee.
There’ll be a display of publications and original archival material and an opportunity to chat with staff from the Archive who will tell us how they can help authors like Donald.
If you’re an aspiring author, come along to this free event and find out all that Archives can do for you.
