We have partnered with the Fighting Words Project for our very first workshop which will take place at 6pm on the 13th February. ***This workshop is now BOOKED OUT***.
We have organised creative writing workshops to create unity and encourage participation. Workshops are one off 2 hour long creative writing adventures and will take place in various locations in Dublin. There will be 5 workshops in total. The workshops will aim to begin the creative writing process.
- During this first phase a discussion will begin about MLK as a role model, his speech and making connections between the issues he spoke about and the lived experience of participants, all framed in the context of life in Ireland today. We want to discuss collectively the dreams we have for a better future.
- The second phase of the workshops will provide an opportunity for participants to discuss their draft speeches with their peers and our workshop facilitators. Essentially, this phase will provide a platform for any questions, concerns or reassurance needed.
Remember; you don’t have to take part in a workshop to be eligible to submit work. We welcome all individual or collaborative works for submission. Work alone, take part in a workshop, or run your own workshops. The process is open. Have fun with it. Find your voice, we can’t wait to hear it!
The date of the next workshop will be announced in the coming weeks.
