Course description

Go West! Take inspiration in the company of thoughtful people, in the tranquil setting of a lovely old 19th century rectory by a small river 5km from Westport. Take time out to write under the guidance of experienced facilitator Fiona Keane (writer, playwright, songwriter). Using well-crafted prompts, get stuck into a new project or re-enage with an existing one.
The weekend is punctuated by tasty homemade snacks and meals, courtesy of Roisin, our warm hostess at Old Rectory Retreat.
Course consists of 4 workshops over 2 days with 2 lunches included.

She creates an inspirational space to write, using gentle prompted guidance, and a ‘lets get on with it’ style where we wrote and shared our work and amazed ourselves. I stayed a few more days to polish my 2 stories. Gracious, kind, Roisin hosts the event in The Old Rectory where I thought I had landed in a piece of writerly heaven. Delicious food and great company rounded out the weekend. Do not miss this. Great value too–Aideen Dunne………………..+ “Thank you for the inspiring weekend. I enjoyed every moment of it. Today I started writing an idea for a children’s book that came to me in Mayo” –Emer Mulcahy
