Please join us for the second session of the Irish Writers Centre Climate Writing Group: Writing for a Change. There is no fee for attending these sessions, they are a gift to all writers to take away and use in their work.
The IWC is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year and we want to make an impact on our world going forward.
Writing for Change is a series of information and writing sessions for a disparate group of writers.
The overall theme is awareness of the planet and encouraging writers to promote positive climate solutions in their work.
It will take place once a month for the duration of 2 hours and will be open to writers of every genre, not just those who write about climate change.
