Strandhill Summerfest 2015 - writing workshop

Knocknarea, Strandhill
Strandhill Summerfest, tutored by Órfhlaith Ní Chonaill, Ted & Annie Deppe and Joe Kearney, is a weekend writing retreat that celebrates writers and writing. It nurtures new work in a gentle, safe and supportive environment. The weekend is suitable for writers of all ages, beginners or established, writing in any genre. This year's workshop runs 3rd to 5th July.

I have taken part in this weekend twice and really enjoyed it – brilliant value, great atmosphere, lovely healthy food, fab location and sweet people. If you go to Strandhill, make sure to eat at the lovely Shells Café - not to be missed!
