Fighting Words Kerry 2023

Fighting Words is a free creative writing programme founded by Roddy Doyle in 2009. It operates on the premise that creative writing is an essential part of every child’s education: that giving children a real dedicated chance and space to explore the limitlessness of their imaginations, does great things. The raw skills that are passed on are some of the key ingredients for succeeding in life with marked improvements in self-expression, literacy, self-esteem and self-confidence.

Kerry Writers’ Museum, Listowel has been delivering the Fighting Words programme to schools in Kerry since 2018. Over 1000 pupils throughout the County have participated in workshops to date. Workshops are available to schools both online and in-person.

The workshops are delivered by volunteer tutors from all sectors of the community. .
