Creative Writing Courses this Spring

From the Irish Writers' Centre:


What was your New Year's resolution?   

Will you finally write that best-selling novel, a thrilling crime saga, a collection of short stories, a play, TV drama, a novel for children, or a collection of poetry? Perhaps you wish to tighten up something you've already written. Whatever your motivations, the new year is a great time to start new projects or revisit old ones and finally putting them to bed.

Whether you wish to write a best-seller, take up a new hobby or write because you can't imagine not writing, we have a course for you!

All the courses are taught by published authors and stretch across several genres. We have courses for people who are picking up a pen for the first time and writers who are going through the hard slog of finishing and editing their work.

If you have questions call us at  01-8721302  or email
