The below course is being run by Margaret O’Brien. I did one if her courses before and I’d highly recommend her.
One Day Writing Workshop
Venue: The Molly Keane House, Ardmore, Co. Waterford
Date: Sunday, 30th June 2013
‘When you lift the gate and walk down the steps into Molly Keane’s house in Ardmore you know you are coming down into a creative lair, into an eagle’s nest, into a writer’s heaven.’ Thomas McCarthy
I am excited at the prospect of bringing together in this workshop the work of two special women: the writer Molly Keane whose home this was and where she wrote her most famous novel ‘Good Behaviour’; and Pat Schneider, founder of Amherst Writers & Artists, author of ‘Writing Alone and With Others’ and ‘How The Light Gets In: Writing as Spiritual Practice’, two powerful and influential books about the process of writing and whose method I am privileged to use.
‘The strangest objects were lost and found, as well as the most ordinary.’from Good Behaviour
You will write in this ‘cottage hanging above Ardmore Bay’ with its stunning sea views, allowing your pen to find that which was never really lost. Throughout the day you will benefit from the stimulation and support of other writers in what Pat Schneider calls ‘necessary companionship’.
If you wish to book a place on this workshop please let me know immediately by email. And if you would like to extend the experience and treat yourself to a weekend in Ardmore here are the contact details for some local B & Bs:

Do feel free to pass this on to anyone you know who might be interested. I look forward to hearing from you.
All best wishes,
Writing Changes Lives
