Seanchaí - The Kerry Writers Museum in Listowel - Creative Writing

  Are you finding it hard to get started? Do you feel 'stuck' in the middle of a novel going nowhere?
Or are you simply anxious to develop your writing skills for personal reasons? Whatever the
answer, this Workshop will help you unlock your creativity.

Through exercises, motivational tips and an in-depth look at the writing process, participants will learn how to harness the creative energy that fuels all the stories we write. We will look at how to develop character, how to write dialogue, and how to put together all the elements of a plot.
Every short story or novel begins with a 'moment of illumination' - a memory, an old photograph, an overheard scrap of conversation. Bring along any potential sources of inspiration and begin your story in earnest during two days of total immersion in the writing process.

Catherine will read from her work on Saturday September 29th at 8pm.  Admission free to workshop participants and €5 to the general public.
