with Jean Tuomey

Monday 13th September - Friday 17th September 2010

Taking place on the inspirational island of Inishbofin, WRITE AWAY is an exciting opportunity to write in an encouraging environment under the popular guidance of Jean Tuomey. This workshop offers a guided, supportive writing environment, and while the craft of writing will be touched on, it is not the primary focus of the course. It is especially suitable for first-time writers or those who have not yet experienced the positive atmosphere of a writing group, however all levels are welcome. The only requisite is enthusiasm. The course is under the guidance of Jean Tuomey, a teacher with over 20 years experience and a passionate enthusiasm for creative writing. Jean has led many extremely successful writing projects for the Linenhall.

WRITE AWAY takes place from 10.00am – 1.00pm daily. Cost per head is €110. (NB. Accommodation and transport to and from the island is NOT included). Places are limited, and booking is ESSENTIAL. Booking and further information from the Linenhall. Tel: 094 9023733
