This online writing workshop for teens aged 12-15 with Elizabeth Rose Murray and Dave Lordan will run over three mornings from 26th to 28th October 2021. Run in association with West Cork Music as part of READ ON EU project co-funded by Creative Europe.
This workshop will take place between 11am – 12:30pm each day with lively discussion, writing tips, Q&A and guided writing exercises. The aim is to encourage teens to pursue their own writing interests and generate new work. The only requirement is an interest in writing or storytelling of any kind.
Elizabeth Rose Murray writes in multiple genres for children, young adults, and adult audiences. Her books include three books for children, The Book of Learning – Nine Lives Trilogy 1 (2016 Dublin UNESCO Citywide Read for Children), The Book of Shadows – Nine Lives Trilogy 2, The Book of Revenge, and the YA novel Caramel Hearts.
Dave Lordan is widely acknowledged as one of Ireland’s leading contemporary poets, essayists and literary thinkers. He is a renowned advocate for community and youth creativity and well-being, working alongside numerous partners in the arts, education, and community sectors. Dave’s essay Revelations appears in The 32: An Anthology of Irish Working-Class Voices published in July 2021.
