Riverbank Arts Centre, Newbridge is the Kildare Partner of Fighting Words. We present creative writing workshops for primary and secondary schools. Fighting Words workshops are always free of charge to the participants.

These fun interactive workshops will be conducted via ZOOM or Microsoft Teams by an experienced Fighting Words tutor, Pierina Campbell,  and supported by 2-3 volunteers from Riverbank’s Fighting Words team. The workshop will last two hours (with optional break!) and we request that the teacher is present throughout. If this is your first time hosting an online workshop in your classroom, technical assistance can be provided.

What to expect?
When a class takes part in a Fighting Words workshop, they create an original story as a group. They develop characters, setting and plot, adding dialogue and editing as they go – and illustrating  the story!  The class will be encouraged to read the final story aloud at the end. 

Price & Format: FREE.  Live on ZOOM or MS teams
Time 11am-1pm Duration: 2 hours
Suitable for 4th Class-6th Class.  To book contact Theresa, 

Please note, as this is a live event with one class per session, places are limited.
