Garbhan Downey is the Libraries NI Writer-in-Residence in the NW area for March. He will be conducting a number of Creative Writing Workshops in various libraries throughout the NW and these will be open events. He will also be holding Writing Clinics. These will be one-to-one sessions for writers who would like to receive some feedback about their work. Anyone interested would need to contact their library and book an hour long session. These individual sessions are proving to be very popular so anyone interested should book as soon as possible.
Participants will be required to submit their work, which should be no more than 2000 words, three days in advance and at the one to one session will get suggestions from Garbhan as to how their work might be improved.
