Creative Writing Workshops

With a variety of exceptional authors running Creative Writing this term, its an exciting time to get involved in the exciting world of the written word.

Waterford Youth Arts Creative Writing programme will be taking place this term on Friday and Saturday evenings up in the Arch on Barracks Street. This is the only programme of its kind in Ireland, catering to young writers aged from 7 to 18, and members have been recipients of the Sean Dunne Young Poets Award and the Hot Press ‘Write Here, Write Now’ competition.

The programme has developed over the last number of years, and has hosted a number of highly respected writers and poets: Dave Lordan, Stephen James Smith, Mark Roper and Billy Roche to name but a few. The group have been involved in the annual Waterford Writers Weekend since 2010 which allows them to showcase their work and celebrate the talent of our young writers.
