Writing dates and details for 2014
They are all gone now aren’t they?
We’ve well and truly crossed into 2014 – decorations are down, chocs are history – and now here are dates and details that should be of interest to all you writers in or around the south-east:
On Sat. 1st February I will be starting my spring series of creative writing workshops in Brewery Lane Theatre
. These will run over 8 Saturday mornings, from 10.30am to 1pm. Each week you are guaranteed to make personal writing discoveries and to learn about the craft of writing while in the stimulating company of other writers. Do get in touch with me asap through the contact page here
if you would like to be part of this group, booking is essential.
The monthly poetry nights in Brewery Lane Theatre resume on Friday, 31st January at 8.15pm. This event is open to anyone who wants to enjoy the pleasures of poetry – just turn up on the night, it’s a friendly group. The theme for January is, appropriately, ‘New’. And well done to all the writers who contributed to the 2013 poetry pamphlet, ‘Tidings’
, with proceeds going to Carrick River Rescue
And plans are well advanced for the (now) annual Brewery Lane Writers’ Weekend. This year’s event will take place over the weekend of April 11th, 12th, 13th and will include workshops with Dave Lordan
on Flash Fiction, a seminar with Shem Caulfield called ‘The Epic is in the Detail’ and, of course, the 2014 Brewery Lane Poetry Competition, which will again have a special category for emerging writers. This year’s competition will be judged by Richard Hayes, Head of the School of Humanities, Waterford Institute of Technology. I will be posting further details of the Writers’ Weekend when booking opens.
And if all of that doesn’t give you the urge to crack open your notebook straightaway and grab a pen I don’t know what would!
