    Craft your own narratives against the backdrop of ancient castles, winding lanes, and spectacular landscapes. Grasp the depth and breadth of Scottish literature in Edinburgh, the birthplace of Arthur Conan Doyle and Iain Banks. Through expert-led workshops, immerse yourself in gothic narratives, crime tales, and mythological legends and develop storytelling tools and techniques.

    Go beyond merely reading and analyzing text and craft your own stories, recording audio renditions of your unique tales alongside other Global Navigators! Meet writers, poets, and performers during oral storytelling evenings. Rediscover The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson and wander through the Royal Mile, where the early Harry Potter drafts were penned. Add your own voice to Scotland’s illustrious literary tradition. When not busy writing, take a dip at the beach, kayak along the Union Canal, and discuss your favorite novels with local teens. On excursions, visit Stirling Castle and the Kelpies, and venture into the Scottish Highlands—keep an eye out for the legendary Loch Ness Monster! Witness firsthand how literature encapsulates the essence and nuances of its surroundings, capturing national identity, age-old myths, tradition, and modernity.
