Fighting Words New Volunteers – we’re looking for you!

Waterford Libraries are looking for new volunteers for their pilot Fighting Words programme starting in February 2020. This hugely successful Fighting Words Creative Writing Programme offers free creative writing workshops for primary school children.

If you are interested in volunteering for this project, come along to the Fighting Words training on Tuesday 21 January at 11:30am in Waterford Central Library. Anyone who enjoys working in a creative environment and is a good listener, is welcome to volunteer. You don’t need to be a writer or a teacher to be a Fighting Words volunteer.

For more information or if you would like to apply, please contact Debbie Johnston at or phone 0761 102974.

Fighting Words was established in Dublin by Roddy Doyle and Séan Love and aims to help children and young people to discover and harness the power of their own imaginations and creative writing skills. Find out more at

This pilot Fighting Words programme in Waterford Libraries is part of the Reader in Residence Programme which is funded by the Waterford City and County Council and the Department of Rural and Community Development Dormant Accounts Fund.
