'Finding The Inner Story' : Life Writing in Poetry & Prose : Cathy Galvin
Join journalist and writer, Cathy Galvin in this formal afternoon writing workshop that finishes with an informal reading session over a drink from the hotel bar.

This workshop will increase your confidence in writing about your own life, or the lives of those close to you.
There will be conversation, analysis, and writing exercises to enjoy and take away.
Suitable for anyone, published or unpublished, seeking to broaden the potential of their writing and imagination.
