Do you want to write?

Ideas Notebook

I will be starting my 8 week series of writing workshops in Brewery Lane Theatre, Carrick-on-Suir on Saturday, 1st February 2014. This is traditionally regarded as the first day of spring – an auspicious day to sow some seeds of creativity.

As always, everyone who participates will generate fresh first drafts during the workshop. If you wish to further develop your writing and learn how to bring it to a new level there will also be the option of bringing a later draft of a manuscript for response to myself and the group. The method I use to support writers and their writing is the Amherst Writers and Artists method as developed by Pat Schneider and described in her book ‘Writing Alone and With Others’. Writers learn not only about craft but also experience the pleasure and satisfaction of writing, without damage to the creative ego of the writer.

After my workshops you should feel encouraged as a writer and always feel more like writing. Read what others have said here. If you would like to know more or to book your place please get in touch with me through the contact page.
