As part of a new project to bring together young people in Leitrim aged 13 to 17 that are interested in creative writing, storyteller and illustrator Wayne O Connor and writer Niamh Mac Cabe will present an 8-week series of writing workshops online starting on 3rd March.
The project is part of a partnership between Leitrim County Council’s Arts and Library services and the Wild Words festival with the aim of developing a core group of young budding writers aged 13 – 17 who will get to take part in fun creative writing workshops with a group of like-minded teenagers.
While this series of workshops must be held online, once Covid restrictions are lifted, workshops will be held in real venues, and as well as the writing workshops themselves, in the fullness of time the group will get to publish their own work, invite renowned authors as guest tutors and organise reading events for young people.
