The Writer’s Room – An Invitation to Story – A Creative Ireland event
Online event 11.00am – 12.30pm

These five creative writing workshops, facilitated by author Helen Blackhurst, will explore the writing process – how we sustain ourselves as writers and deepen our writing experience. We will look at key areas of craft for fiction and memoir writing. How do we bring our stories to life? How can our characters breathe on the page? What is it we want to tell? There will be space to examine writing challenges as well as the opportunity to develop new work through a range of creative writing techniques. Open to all writers.
These are free events for people throughout Co. Clare aged 18+. Places are strictly limited so booking is essential. In order to take part, participants will require remote access to Zoom. For more information and to book your place, please contact Scariff Library on 061 922893 during branch opening hours or email scarriff_library@clarecoco.ie
