About the blog

 Hi, my name is Iain Finlay Macleod and I am a writer. I like to blog about the craft and business of writing. The aim of the site is to create value for you - to provide content that will help you with your writing - whether that is creative writing, content or for business.

I find blogging a great way to learn. There are also incredible resources available online now and I enjoy sharing what I find with people.

Some more detail on the main topics I like to write and learn about:

Playwriting & Screenwriting - learning more about the craft and developing as a writer.

Dramaturgy for writers - looking at how writers can use dramaturgical techniques and approaches to develop their own practice.

Learning and Teaching - getting better at learning and understanding how learning happens means that you can develop whichever skills you want in a quicker and more effective way.

The Teaching Artist - the intersection of being an artist and teaching others, and how it helps you develop as an artist well as passing it forward.

I also write a monthly newsletter called 'The Macleod Post', where I share actionable writing strategies and high quality insights from across the web,  directly to your inbox. Sign up here:
