Open day at The Irish Writers Centre on 27 August

The Irish Writers Centre is set to open its doors for an Autumn Open Day on Saturday 27 August to inform those interested in writing about the variety of services, courses, and resources available at the organisation.

Propelled by its new five-year strategy, the Centre has ambitious plans to enhance opportunities for people across all communities to explore and participate in creative writing.

Running from 10.30am until 4pm, the day will feature a range of events including open invitations to join the Inkslingers and New Irish Communities writing groups, a tour of the Georgian building that houses the Irish Writers Centre, a range of free workshops, a panel discussion, a Novel Fair information session and much more.

There will also be lots of opportunities to meet and chat with people who have an interest in books and writing.

Speaking about the upcoming Autumn Open Day, IWC Chairperson Breda Brown said that the centre is delighted to welcome writers and lovers of literature to Parnell Square.

“Writers work in community, and through our work at the Irish Writers Centre we have witnessed the benefits of bringing writers of all backgrounds and stages of career development together. This August, we are excited to open our doors to the public to show them what exactly we do and promote access to the IWC’s thriving literary community.

“We would say to anyone who is interested in exploring creative writing to come to the Irish Writers Centre on 27 August to see the range of events and supports we have on offer.”
