I am super excited to be helping out at the 3rd annual Dalkey Creates writing festival this coming October!
There are workshops and classes planned for every level of writer, from beginners to those ready for publication, and all priced really reasonably. One exciting new event this year is a Meet-the-Editor event with Ciara Doorley of Hachette on Saturday 15th October – an incredible opportunity to meet a real editor in person, and ask the questions you’ve always wanted answered about submitting your writing work!
And no writer should miss out on the Open Mic event being held on Thursday evening, the 13th October in Finnegans pub. It’s free to register, and you will have the ears of the locals (some of whom are famous writers themselves) as you share 5 minutes of your own writing with them. The winner of the Dalkey Creates short story competition will also be announced that evening. With a prize of €1,000 up for grabs, I’m thinking the first round will be on them! LOL.
Some classes are already booked out, and as many of them are limited to 10 places, you have no time to waste in booking yours.
So get creative! Click here for easy online booking or for more info on how to reserve your place at one of the many exciting writing workshops.
