Writing Courses

Saturday is the first day of September. The streets are full of school-going pupils and teachers. It's time to think long dark winter nights and doing that course you always meant to do.

Boyne Writers Group return this evening after their summer break and LitLab in a few weeks. Both groups are organising writing workshops early this term. The Irish Writers Centre has a great variety of course on offer and there are similar courses elsewhere in the country.
