Memoir writing at Clare County Library

Creative Writer’s WorkshopAn enlightening “creative journey” through writing took place at the DeValera Public Library in Ennis On Tuesday 26th May in the form of a memoir writing workshop. The session was organised by Clare County Library and delivered by Irene Graham, a writer and photographer with a background in educational studies. In 1991 Irene founded the Creative Writer’s Workshop, which has become an international success in memoir and fiction writing. Her writing techniques are based upon right-brain/left-brain learning techniques and exercises. Using her recently published Memoir Writing Workbook, Irene showed the group how to write a memoir creatively… and how to have fun doing it. Irene’s vision is that memoir writing workshops will inspire individuals to write and share their life stories. She explains some of the reasons behind the project saying “I wanted to share on a broader scale the sheer joy of writing. I wanted to provide a platform for people to write and document their life stories for future generations.” She continues “Our lives are full of memories. A multitude of experiences that have shaped the paths that led us to where we are now in our personal life journeys.” The event sparked the creativity and enthusiasm of participants and feedback has been very positive. It is hoped that their stories and precious insights will become treasured possessions of family members and future generations. For further information contact Clare County Library at 065 6899090.
