Since launching in 2006 Inkwell Writers’ Workshops has pioneered the one-day model for intensive fiction writing workshops in Ireland.

As a result of the success of our workshops and the development of the national online writing resources magazine, the workshops we run today are in partnership with other organisations and festivals. We programme a wide range of literary events and workshops across the country which give writers greater access to expert facilitators and gives us a chance to connect with many more emerging writers.

Wherever you choose to take a workshop, it will boost your confidence, give you essential guidance on technique and inspire you to get writing.

We have worked closely with and recommend the following providers for top level workshops and courses:

The Big Smoke Writing Factory

The Irish Writers Centre

Dublin Writers Festival

Listowel Writers Week

Mountains to Sea Festival

Waterford Writers Festival

Dalkey Book Festival

Anam Cara Writer’s and Artist’s Retreat

West Cork Literary Festival
