Kevin Macneil : The Stornoway Way

English Higher / Advancer Higher

Kevin Macneil is a multi-award-winning, widely published and broadcast writer who has taught and performed internationally. He has written six books (novels, poetry, aphorisms) and edited six books (including works by Robert Louis Stevenson and Iain Crichton Smith), plus he has written for cinema, stage, radio and television. He has taught internationally and is a Lecturer in Creative Writing at University of Stirling.

Kevin will talk about his best-selling novel, The Stornoway Way which is full of wit and wisdom, both a romantic evocation and a scabrous critique of the Isle of Lewis – “a great and symbolic chip off Scotland’s shoulder”.  He will also explain the process of adapting the book for the newly staged production with Dogstar Theatre.
