I am delighted to reveal that I will be holding a one-day summer writing workshop on the slopes of fabled Sliabh na mBan, in Co. Tipperary, on Sunday, 29th July, (maybe it should be re-named ‘Scríobh na mBan’ for the day).
The venue is Manyweathers Studio, close to the village of Kilcash, a working artist’s space full of creative energy and with views that will inspire you and fuel your writing. This will be a day where we will slow down, pay attention to place, to our senses and allow our pens to reveal the details, to offer surprises.
As always my approach to writers and writing is informed by the wisdom and work of Pat Schneider and Amherst Writers and Artists, I am an affiliate of AWA and Pat’s book, Writing Alone and With Others, will give those interested an insight into the way I facilitate workshops, and why, and is available in libraries and bookshops. This workshop method always generates creative surprises for both novice and more experienced writers and is based on a trust and belief in the inherent creativity of people. One of my roles as facilitator is to hold a space where we listen to each other and connect with what we hear and, for me, this is a great pleasure and privilege. I just love to do this.
The workshop will be limited to 10 participants. To book please get in touch with me through the Contact Page. All you will need is a pen, a notebook and a desire to write.
