Fact to fiction workshop
with Niamh Boyce
9.30am - 12.30pm
Venue - MAC'S @ Mcevoy's Steak & Wine Bar, Abbeyleix (Covered Courtyard)

In this workshop we will explore how true stories can inspire a work of fiction... It would be of interest to anyone fascinated by a true story or incident (from history, or current times, from their own lives or someone else's)   which they would like to tackle in writing. We will consider the question - 'how much truth, how much fiction?' The session is suitable for both beginners and those who have been writing for a while. All you need is a pen and paper.
