A one-day workshop where participants will enjoy readings of some of John McGahern's stories and participate in writing exercises. The day will be held in the Barracks in Cootehall.
Writer John McGahern lived at the Barracks during his childhood when his father was based in the police station in Cootehall which inspired his novel The Barracks.
The Writing workshops would not only seek to encourage new ambitions in the writers of the county but also would be steeped in the history of one of Ireland's more loved and accredited authors.
