Last Workshop Scheduled for 2009

This year's workshop season is proving to be one of the best ever. It began with Paula Meehan, one of Ireland's finest poets, and Juliet Clancy, a gifted dreamworker, combining to provide a powerful, inspirational week for each of the workshop poets as the work they produced will attest.
Coming up in the next two weeks are the Haiku and Meditation and Short Story workshops, both fully subscribed, and from all accounts, the leaders and the participants are enthusiastically looking forward to their time together.
The final workshop of the season will be led by Karen Blomain and Michael Downend. There are a few places left, and judging from the success of their other two, their week here will finish off the year in wonderful style.

Writing in Ireland: A Workshop

Leaders: Karen Blomain, an American novelist, playwright, and poet and Michael Downend, an American playwright and scriptwriting coach

Returning to Anam Cara in 2009 after another very successful workshop in 2008, this relaxed-format offering is designed for writers at all levels of accomplishment -- from the novice wishing to try her hand at writing, to the seasoned writer who needs a jump start for his muse for a new project, to those wishing to challenge themselves in a different art form. Appropriate for all genres. Non-writing spouses/partners welcome; they'll find the peaceful, Irish vistas the perfect getaway and may even find themselves drawn into their own creative outlets.

One-week residential retreat from Saturday, 26 September through Friday, 2 October 2009

For more information about this workshop, please contact Sue at Bookings are limited to a minimum of 6 and a maximum of 15 participants on a first-deposit-in basis.

  1. Just a note to endorse Karen Blomain and Michael Downend's workshop. It was a week of well-timed magical inspiration for me a few years back. I arrived wrung out creatively, and really needed a gentle boost, a fresh start, a creative MOT and a new pair of creative specs.

    I never looked back, and am grateful to them for their generosity of spirit as well as terrific craft input.

    Thank you both!
