Monday, 28 September 2009 is a creative writing community where Irish writers can share and develop their work. As well as allowing aspiring authors to showcase their work, the site features a forum where members can chat to each other, and it provides updates of writing competitions and events, lists of local writing groups and a list of magazines to submit work to. In the Getting Started as a Writer section, well known Irish writers share their experience with new and aspiring writers and offer a step by step guide to help you achieve your writing goals. Gabriel Fitzmaurice, one of Ireland's best known poets, offers some timely advice for those taking the plunge into poetry writing, while Carlo G├ębler shares tips, techniques and insights drawn from a lifetime's experience as a successful author. Later guides covering Short Fiction, Popular Fiction, Journalism, Travel Writing and Memoirs will be added. Each guide draws on the author's experience and provides a simple, easy to follow route map to get the best out of your writing ideas. Membership is free and the site already has 600 members in its online writing community.
