WEXFORD-BASED author and journalist Jackie Hayden will host a repeat 'Write For Your Life' workshop at Wexford Arts Centre on Thursday, November 14, from 7 p.m. to 9.45 p.m.
'More and more people are seeing the value of writing down their life experiences, and not necessarily for publication. Some want to do it for the pleasure of writing, while others see a therapeutic value in putting their recollections and feelings into words. Unfortunately, many find it difficult to get started,' he said.
Hayden will demystify the process at this workshop, using his experience as a writer, editor and journalist.
He has written 10 books, mostly of a biographical nature, including the number one bestseller 'My Boy'.
He has edited four autobiographies for other writers, and written thousands of articles, reviews, interviews and news items. He has also published interviews with a variety of subjects, from Bob Geldof, The Corrs, Sinead O'Connor, Christy Moore, Gerry Ryan, Marty Whelan and Mary Black, to Michael D Higgins, Johnny Giles, David Norris and Gerry Adams.
Places are limited to 20 participants, and the cost is €45 per person. For details visit wexfordartscentre.ie or ring 053 9123764.
