The Field Trip

Miranda, The Tempest - John William Waterhouse cropThe day will begin with a meet-up and writing exercise in the Glens Centre.  Weather permitting we will then go on a car-pooling, wheelchair-accessible field trip to the Shannon Pot, followed by an alfresco lunch and writing session at the Cavan Burren.

There is a catering van at the Cavan Burren, run by Cuilcagh Catering. They offer soup, sandwiches, chips, breakfast baps, scones, tea, coffee etc – alternatively, you can bring your own lunch. We will return to the Glens Centre for the afternoon writing session.

Feedback from the Bealtaine workshop

You brought the myths alive again for me… Very good workshop, well researched and well planned… I could not believe how much gold I unearthed… Very interesting triggers… An incredibly encouraging and talent-nurturing workshop….
