Creative Writing Course June 27th-30th

Spirit, Inspiration, and Creativity …… Three days devoted solely to nurturing one’s own creative writing abilities in a supportive, positive, and inspirational environment

This three-day writers retreat is for aspiring and seasoned writers alike. This is not nuts and bolts writing course, but rather a writer’s retreat; an opportunity to come and draw inspiration from the spiritual environment and rhythm of Glenstal Abbey, from the facilitators, lecturers, and from the other participants

These three days will be about encouragement rather than critique, about building confidence and learning through the positive feedback of one’s own work and that of others.

With Eva O’Callaghan, certified writing facilitator, writer and teacher, Michael Joyce, writer, poet, and psychotherapist, and Marsha Eger, writer and teacher of chanting and  meditation and with special lectures on writing practice and style by authors and members of the Glenstal monastic community and special guest, poet Richard Halperin.

Cost: 450 residential and 225 non-residential. Registration and guesthouse reservations can be made by calling 061 621005 or emailing,
