National Carers WeekComments Off on Creative Writing Workshop for Family Carers – Ardkeen Library

National Carers Week takes place across the country from 13th – 19th June.

Ardkeen Library is delighted to host a Creative Writing Workshop for Family Carers with Derbhile Graham on Tuesday 14th June 2022 from 11:00am – 12:30pm as part of National Carers Week.

In this creative writing workshop, you will do gentle writing activities based on storytelling techniques that will help you give shape to your life experience as a family caring. You will learn to tell the stories of the people and places that are important to you and to structure the story of a typical day in your life. You will also learn how to tap into the senses to unlock your memories. This will be a relaxing and fun workshop.

Derbhile Graham is a writer and creative writing tutor living in Tramore, Co. Waterford. She is touring her one woman show, ‘People Wipe Me,’ in the summer, and she’s also written a novel, The Pink Cage. She gives creative writing workshops to people of all ages, but has a particular interest in healthcare and disability. She has given workshops for Waterford Intellectual Disability Association, the Bealtaine Festival and St Joseph’s Special School, amongst others.
