Cork County Council Library & Arts Service and Creative Ireland are pleased to announce a unique creative non-fiction writing workshop series, beginning 15th March, 2021. The series is aimed at Cork people living abroad & people from abroad living in Cork.
Maeve Higgins, contributing opinion writer with The New York Times and author of three essay collections, will facilitate the six-week course.

Creative non-fiction has been a wonderful path through curiosity to self-expression for me.”

With participants coming from the diasporic community, themes such as migration, home and belonging will be explored in a creative, collaborative and engaging way – with a large smattering of fun in the mix too!
