DROP-IN SPACES IN THURSDAY NIGHT ADVANCED WORKSHOP IN GLASTHULE:

My longest-running workshop: participants have won book deals and national competitions, and still they come back to the Thursday night sessions because of the ethos and atmosphere they find there, and the learning the sessions are still offering.

TBA as soon as possible).

Following on from the last similar day on 28 June (‘fantastic!’ I was told!), the date for this is August 9th (SUNDAY). €95/ or €80 to current students in other classes. This session will combine a workshop with a taught/ discursive and facilitated session on the question of Voice and Clarity, looking at the work of established writers plus at difficulties we are all having on this issue in our own writing. You’ll receive study materials in advance for this course to maximise our effectiveness on the day.Email yvonnesworkshops@gmail.com, phone 086 1701418
