Novice and seasoned writers alike can unleash the novel within them at an upcoming creative writing workshop in Wexford library.

Beginning on February 2, Wexford poet and writer Margaret Galvin will facilitate the four workshops, all of which are aimed at those who seek self-discovery through writing. As a social care graduate, Margaret is particularly interested in the role creative writing can play as a self-help strategy.

Sessions will be interactive and course content will be guided by participants needs and interests.

Along with writing, participants will explore theories of well-being and examine the work of various writers.

The four session programme will be delivered in Wexford Library on February 2,9, 23 and 1. It runs from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. and participants must attend all workshops. Booking is essential.
