Getting Started at Writingworkshop series for adults with Jean Tuomey

Five Fridays commencing 20th February, 11.00am-1.00pm

An introductory creative writing course for those who would like to write but find they cannot get started. Over five Friday morning sessions, the course offers participants the opportunity to write in an encouraging environment. Informality will be an important aspect of the course, making it especially suitable for first-time writers or those who have not yet experienced the positive atmosphere of the writing group.

The series is under the guidance of Jean Tuomey, a teacher with over 20 years experience. She trained as a writing facilitator with the National Association for Poetry Therapy in the US, and has a passionate enthusiasm for creative writing. Jean has led many extremely successful writing projects for the Linenhall.

Getting Started at Writing workshop for adults takes place over five Friday mornings commencing 20th February from 11.00am-1.00pm (continuing 27th Feb; 6th, 13th & 20th Mar). Cost per head for the workshop series is €50. Places are limited, booking is ESSENTIAL. Booking and further information from the Linenhall.
