It’s a war out there! A recent survey by the NLT shows the number of children who read for pleasure has declined by approximately 25% in just 7 years. It seems new writers aren’t battling against the likes of JK Rowling or John Green to get noticed but Xbox One and YouTube. So how do we grab the attention of the modern reluctant reader? Let’s go back to the beginning… Keith Gray will lead a fully interactive workshop exploring intriguing, unique and above all attention-grabbing openings to your stories. Using famous examples as well as workshopping your own ideas Keith will discuss what he considers to be the Big 4 Hooks: Situation, Mood, Character and Incident. (Not forgetting that hooking in an agent or editor can often feel like a battle with the most reluctant reader of all).

Get ready for the future! We're one of the UK's best celebrations of science and technology. Back in 2014 from 5 - 20 April. Time is ticking down until the start of the 2014 Edinburgh International Science Festival in April and the programme for the Festival will be launched on Thursday 13 February.
The programme theme, Science at the heart of things, will see us exploring the centrality of science to all aspects of our lives. Starting with the personal, we’ll push the boundaries of our understanding of the mind, body and health as well as looking at the many ways in which science underpins our daily pursuits, pastimes and distractions – think food, drink, fashion, sport, gardening, gaming and much more.
This Halloween experience the origins of Halloween as we know it as you join the Druids in their Dinner for the Dead. Take a seat in our expertly themed hilltop glade and join the Votadini tribe in 66AD (our oldest show ever!) It's Samhuinn; the time when Summer ends and Winter is embraced, and the veil between worlds is at its thinnest. It's a time of festivities and harvest where your future will be divined! Who will find love, or wealth? Join us and discover your fate. Celtic druids would lay out a feast in celebration leaving a place set for their Ancestors to return from beyond and join in. Unfortunately it wasn't only their ancestors that would return. thedungeons.com
