The Open University is delighted to support Open the Door 2019, Scotland’s literary festival that puts women to the fore.

Scotland’s festival for Scottish women’s writing, run by the Glasgow Women's Library, returns for its third edition. Expect creative workshops, in-depth discussions, open mic sessions and plenty of performances from the best literary talent this country has to offer.

Featuring writers such as Liz Lochhead, Chitra Ramaswamy, Lucy Ellmann, Kerry Hudson, and Juana Adcock, the festival has expanded the number of events that, for the first time, will take place over two days. 

A highlight of the festival includes a special interview with acclaimed Scottish author, playwright, academic and journalist Ali Smith.

Further event details and ticket booking is available on the Glasgow Women's Library website.  

You can try Creative Writing course content for free, on the OU site OpenLearn, such as the 8-hour course Writing what you know, or the 12-hour course Start writing fiction.
