More Workshops at the Irish Writers Centre

Quite a good selection of teachers here. The prices are reasonable I suppose.


Feature Writing with Henry McDonald 165 Euro

On this six-week course Henry will show the diversity in approaches to feature writing and how the genre differs from the who, what, where, when and how of conventional straight news reporting.

10 WEEK COURSES all 280 Euro

Finish your Novel with Conor Kostick

This is a practical course for writers who are already part-way through the writing of a book. It takes place on Monday evenings.

Beginners Creative Writing with Nessa O'Mahoney

During the ten weeks of the course, we’ll explore that mysterious thing called inspiration as well as discussing the craft of writing. The approach will consist of a combination of in-class tuition and exercises and peer critiquing of work in progress. The focus will be on producing work and learning how to edit it.

Beginners' Creative Writing with Jean O'Brien

We all have our own stories to tell, this ten-week course is aimed at releasing that story, be it through the medium of fiction, memoir or poetry. If you want to know how to put your story down in a structured way, how and where to get started and how to complete your tale then this course is for you.

Writing Poetry with Peter Sirr
