Creative Writing Groups at Dublin City Libraries

Like to write? Want to try? Fiction, poetry, it matters not. A little ambition can go a long way! Members of Writers' Groups meet informally to talk about their writings, improve their skills, and to offer encouragement to one another. Currently there are Writers' Groups in eight branch libraries (Ballyfermot, Ballymun, Cabra, Central Library, Donaghmede, Kevin Street, Pearse Street, Raheny). However days, dates and times vary for library to library so it is advisable to check with the relevant library in advance if interested in participating in a Writers' Group. Details are as follows:
