Workshops & Events

Inkwell started life curating intensive one day workshops featuring bestselling authors. We’ve now grown into  publishing consultancy and provide all the services you need to improve your fiction (and non fiction) to achieve your goals.


Inkwell pioneered the one day workshop in Ireland. As Inkwell grew and became a publishing consultancy, the workshops we do now focus on publishing and how the industry works. Vanessa Fox O’Loughlin has a unique 360 degree understanding of the industry, from starting to write to getting your book onto a self whether with a traditional publisher or via self publishing. Check out our workshops and events listing to see where Vanessa will be next.
