What do we do?

Participants read from their own work, either a poem, short story or extract from a novel or play and then receive feedback from the group.  The emphasis in the workshop is on constructive feedback.  Participants are welcome to attend without reading themselves but you’ll have much more fun if you read yourself. We ask participants to bring copies of the work they plan on reading.

A fee of €5 per person (€3 concessions) is charged to cover costs. The fee for the prose meetings is €6 (€4 concession).

Where do we meet?

7.30 pm to 10.00 pm at Christ Church’s committee room (via back entrance to the church) in the centre of Rathgar Village for the general meeting. Prose meetings are held in the Christ Church community centre’s Highfield rooom, Rathgar Village from 7.30 p.m. to 10 p.m. For more information please contact James Conway on 086 – 40255 78.

When do we meet?

  • General meetings are held every second Thursday.
  • Prose-only meetings one Monday a month, usually the last Monday of the month.
