Here you will have the chance to leave the stress of mainland life behind, allowing yourself to focus on writing for a few precious days. The amenities are simple, the island beautiful, the welcome warm. You will try a variety of writing techniques and have the option of a short mentoring session. There will be plenty of laughter and you will also have time to explore the island.

Rolling With The Punches: 29 Nov. 7.30pm Ullapool Library

crime thriller

Rejection slips, slush piles, punishing deadlines and biting criticism – writing is no game for the faint hearted. It takes dedication, hard work, resilience - and a lot of self-belief. Much the same qualities required for success in sport. Sit back and enjoy a glass of wine as the former sparring partners of Lochbroom FM’s Saturday Shout, author, Lorraine Thomson, and lifelong sportsman, John Grant, have a lively conversation about the parallels between the two.
Free to attend. Complimentary wine and soft drinks will be served. Book your place at the library or email: evelyn.irvine@highlifehighland.com

The New Dark

The New Dark, the first book in the Dark Times trilogy is available now.

The world has entered a new dark age. There is no internet, no power grid and food is scarce. Life is dangerous for most, but Sorrel lives in the relative safety of Amat. It is all she has ever known until it is destroyed by a gang of mutants. Her friends and family are either killed or captured. Her little brother and the boy she loves are among the taken. This exciting dystopian trilogy follows Sorrel’s dangerous journey on her quest to be reunited with Eli and David.
