Study Abroad in Ireland 2016 – Creative Writing Study Abroad Program George Mason University, Virginia, USA and The Creative Writer’s Workshop

The Creative Writer’s Workshop Study Abroad Program guides you through simple and fun right-brain/left-brain exercises, which draw upon your imagination as you learn the principles of story and express your creativity through writing fiction, memoir and autobiographical fiction.

New, emerging and advanced writers are offered the opportunity to explore fiction and life experiences through the creation of story, in a chosen genre, be it Literary Fiction, Science Fiction/Fantasy, Memoir, Crime, Children’s, Popular Fiction etc.

The aim of the program is to trigger and deepen imaginative concepts, strengthen writing voice and enhance inherent creativity so that you understand story and learn how to write best sellers.  Students are welcome to develop a concept they have previously worked on, or use the workshop to access new writing concepts.

The writing program also includes guided mythology walks and talks to ancient sites on Inis Mor Island and an exploratory adventure in the Burren landscape…plus walking the famous Cliffs of Moher on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way…plus guided Literary Tours in Dublin...including a day to remember - James Joyce 'Bloomsday' celebration.  See you in Ireland - Summer 2016! .
