Fighting Words Kerry Story Seeds

Fighting Words is about using the creative practice of writing and storytelling to strengthen our children and teenagers – from all backgrounds – to be resilient, creative and successful shapers of their own lives.

Fighting Words Kerry run by Kerry Writers’ Museum, Listowel will deliver 10 creative writing and illustration workshops to primary and post primary school pupils in five locations in County Kerry – Dingle, Kenmare, Killarney, Listowel & Tralee – from May to November 2024 as part of the Story Seeds project.

Story Seeds aims to support children and young people to write their own stories, together and individually, enabling them to begin to understand their own life story. It not only introduces children and young people to creative writing, it also strengthens their positive sense of themselves and their communities.

Story Seeds will prioritise DEIS schools in Kerry to participate in the workshops which will be delivered in English and Irish.

Please note that the details of events listed above are provided by the relevant Local Authorities.
