The Scottish Writers’ Centre Podcast Episode 7: The Natural World of Stories, Legends and Songs with Grace Banks

By 17/04/2018March 10th, 2019No Comments

Our new episode of the Scottish Writers’ Centre Podcast is a soul-soothing adventure from one of the SWC’s most enchanting workshops. Grace Banks, talented storyteller, singer, author, and embodiment of gentleness, looked at what can inspire and influence creativity, the art of storytelling, and how each individual has a unique tale to tell.

Those who attended the workshop got to explore different approaches to their own writing, the results of which you’ll hear near the end. There are even some beautifully sung ballads in there too!

Grace works as a storyteller, singer and outdoor-discovery facilitator mainly in and around Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire. She runs workshops and sessions for adults and/or children. You can reach her on her website at
