Hello, I’m Margaret and I lead creative writing workshops, mainly in the south-east of Ireland. I write fiction, poetry and sometimes practice the almost lost art of letter writing. You can read more about me here. In my workshops everyone writes – pens get hot and words tumble on to the page as our innate, individual creativity is released.  There is often laughter, there is always appreciation. You can get details of my workshops here.
