Writers from the Write to Life group at the Medical Foundation for the Care of Victims of Torture
will be travelling to the Edinburgh Festival to read their work in two special events this weekend.
Firstly, on Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 August, writers will give readings at the Peppers Theatre in Charlotte Square at 5.30pm. The readings are free and tickets are available from the Edinburgh Book Festival's site
(although, irritatingly, the online box office wasn't working when I checked just now) or by calling Amnesty International Scotland on 08448 009 088.
On Sunday 20 August at Theatre Workshop
in Hamilton Place, some of the writers will also be performing their work in a rehearsed reading with music. Call the Book Festival box office on 0845 373 5888.
Look out for Mark
, all of whom have work featured on the LOBI writing wiki.
