Galway Writers' Workshop meets each Saturday between 3 pm and 5 pm in The Galway Arts Centre. Although organised and maintained by Crannóg magazine in association with Wordsonthestreet Publishers it is a peer-led workshop ie there is no one facilitator.
Members bring copies (usually 8-10) of their work (poetry, fiction, drama, memoir etc), read it aloud and have it critiqued by the other members. Usually about 15 minutes is allotted to each reader. The atmosphere is friendly and supportive and criticism is always constructive. Membership is free. However there is a charge of ten euro per calendar month for room rental which is collected at the end of each month.
Intending members must first contact Gerardine Burke at: email@example.com.
Tell her about
your previous writing experience,
publications if any,
classes attended etc
and what you hope to gain from the workshop.
