Why not start to write creatively?

Meets every second Wednesday in Ballyfermot Library, Room 3.

From 6.30 p.m. – 7.45 p.m. New members welcome. From beginners to advanced.

Next meeting: Wednesday 5th October 2016.

 

How it Works:

Unholster your pencil and write creatively on the spot to a bespoke, tinselled prompt given out on the night.
