free, booking essential
Book Now

We are hosting an introduction to Fighting Words at Riverbank Arts Centre with co-founder and former Chairman, Roddy Doyle.

Fighting Words is a free creative writing programme co-founded by Roddy Doyle and Seán Love in January 2009. It operates on the premise that creative writing is an essential part of every child’s education: that giving children a dedicated chance and space to explore the limitlessness of their imaginations, does great things. Riverbank Arts Centre is the Kildare Partner of Fighting Words. We present creative writing workshops for primary and secondary schools and run a young playwrights’ programme. Fighting Words workshops are always free of charge to the participants.

We are looking to expand our team of voluntary tutors. Fighting Words have over 400 volunteer tutors – people from all walks of life including students, retired people, writers (both professional and aspiring), teachers, journalists, visual artists to name just a few.

Full training will be provided and you will always work as part of a team.

If you want to find out more about Fighting Words – come along and hear first-hand from Roddy himself! This event is for anyone who is interested in the work Fighting Words has done over the last 14 years and their plans for the future (not just potential volunteers!)

This is a free event but booking is essential!
