Course description and online booking available here.

I’m also giving a creative writing class for City of Dublin ETB at Crumlin College of Further Education beginning in the next few weeks. Registration takes place by contacting or calling in to the college, rather than online, and a few people are already signed up by phone or by dropping in. If you’re a beginner or if you’ve already done some writing, you’re welcome to come along. Class begins at 6.45pm and ends at 8.15pm.

Contact details for Crumlin College: Crumlin College, Crumlin Road, Dublin 12 Tel: 01 454 0662.

I’ll be announcing details soon of other workshops I’m giving.

I look forward to seeing some new faces as well the familiar ones. Some of my students’ successes can be found here. Hover on ‘mentoring’ tab for my references etc. Several students have won City Of Dublin ETB Creative Writing Awards, run annually for CDETB colleges across Dublin. And students from both Crumlin College and People’s College have gone on to win prestigious writing awards outside of the colleges.
