The Creative Writer’s Workshop:
Fiction & Autobiographical Fiction | Memoir Writing Workshop & Retreat
Myth | Walking Inis Mór, Aran Islands, Galway and the Cliffs of Moher, Doolin, Co. Clare, Ireland

with Book Writing Coach & Author Irene Graham

Inspire your writing spirit, invigorate your senses and create the story that’s in your heart. A writing adventure to deepen your connection to story in the stunning landscape of Ireland’s western shores.

In Sept 2017 Irene Graham, Founder of The Creative Writer’s Workshop is offering a Fiction, Autobiographical Fiction and Memoir Writing Workshop and Retreat over a two-week period.

Irene’s retreats are renowned by international writers, not only for her innovative techniques that show you how to focus, develop, create and write your stories…but for weaving inspiration and creativity into your writing journey through walking ancient sites, exploring myth and legends and engaging in music and meaningful discussions. 

Gourmet food, luxurious private room accommodation and a memorable journey is assured.

If you want to write a publishable Novel and/or Memoir, this is the workshop to find out how. You will return home invigorated, with a deep understanding and knowledge of story, motivated to complete your book.

Using right-brain/left-brain learning techniques our aim is to trigger and deepen imaginative concepts, tap into life experiences, strengthen writing voice, shape characters, form setting, frame theme, create structure – and develop your story so that it’s ready to hop off the page!

The workshop is open to new, emerging and established writers to:
• create a short story / memoir
• develop a novel / memoir
• work on a current manuscript

You receive feedback on your story throughout the workshop.

Create.  Write.  Relax.

How it works:
Your writing journey is flexible – you may attend either or both workshops.

Start your Fiction & Autobiographical Fiction journey on Inis Mór Island, walk ancient sites, learn of myth and legends.  Focus, develop and write your Novel.  Journey onto Doolin in Co. Clare to walk the famous Cliffs of Moher, explore the Burren - a geological wonder with unique botanical richness and engage with Irish musicians in old Irish pubs.  Return to Inis Mór Island to write your Memoir, tap into life experiences and explore more of the island and its hidden treasures. Or leave the retreat at the end of your Doolin adventure.

Or start your writing journey in Doolin on Fri 8 Sept.  Join the Fiction Writers for a weekend of exploration, walking, music and great writing discussions.  Then continue onto Inis Mór Island on Sun 10 Sept to trigger, focus and develop your Memoir.
