Our book launch...

A writing group supported by Sottish Autism made up of writers who have Autism Spectrum Disorder are launching their first publication of work on Thursday 25th August in Glasgow City Centre. The launch, which starts at 5pm in the stunning venue at 49 Cochrane Street, is a celebration and promotion of "Write Not Wrong" the anthology of short creative writing.

The writers are supported by Scottish Autism through the West of Scotland Outreach Services, and the collection presents a superb collection of well-observed, witty and insightful writing which both educates and entertains the reader.

Billi Love, Chris Weatherston, Paul Ritchie, Darren Cameron and Jon Dixon meet weekly to explore in writing various experiences, emotions and themes. The West of Scotland Writer's Group provides a positive environment for them to develop their talent and let their creativity flourish.

In addition, there will be displays of some of the captivating art which the writers have produced in association with their writing.

The writers themselves will all be present at the Launch so it promises to be a pleasant, informal evening and a great opportunity to meet the supporters and users of Scottish Autism. The Provost of Glasgow will be coming along, as well as journalist and writer Gordon Darroch. An invitation has also been extended to Hollywood movie star Brad Pitt! We have created an !Event over on facebook so have a look and let us know if you can come along....
