Fighting Words Creative Writing Workshop

Fighting Words Kildare are running a FREE creative writing workshop for children aged 8-12 years in celebration of Cruinniú na nÓg.

This workshop is open to young writers and artists who would like a space to explore their own ideas and storytelling! We will work together as a group to write a story before inviting the writers and artists to take some time to delve into their own creativity. This workshop will be about tapping into our imaginations, with the help and listening ears of Fighting Words volunteer mentors.
