Join various seasoned facilitators Mark Granier and Liz Farsaci every Saturday at the Irish Writers Centre for two hours of creative writing exercises with feedback on your work. Share your life experiences through new pieces of poetry or prose – and do it well in English. This course is perfect for non-native English speakers with an interest in creative writing. Some proficiency in English is recommended.
