A series of writing workshops to explore relationships with the Cairngorms National Park will take place later this month.
The authority is hosting four events through the year with support from Creative Scotland and the Woodland Trust to create a shared story of the mountain range.
Literary work compiled during that time will then be collated to create a document of shared stories about nature from different seasons.
Kincraig-based Merryn Glover, the first writer-in-residence for the Cairngorms National Park Authority, will lead the workshops to encourage others to open up.
She said: “I am really excited about the workshops in the Tomintoul and Glenlivet area as it has so many extraordinary things that people can explore in their writing.
“Not only is it renowned for its wildlife and cultural landscapes, but it’s now also the most northerly Dark Skies park in the world.”
The four workshops will take place at the Discovery Centre in Tomintoul from 6.30pm to 8.30pm on Tuesdays April 23 and 30 and May 7 and 14.
The events are open to anyone more than 16 years old. Attendance is free, but places should be booked by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org
