In this one-off innovative writing workshop with Ronnie McGrath you will be acquainted with the necessary ideas to think about your writing in the context of a diverse world where notions of identity are constantly in flux. In such a fast moving world, where we can erase information at the click of a button, it has never been more important for us to create the type of stories and poems that are often overlooked and therefore go unrecorded. That is to say, texts (poetry and prose), that are highly imaginative pieces of work, aesthetically pleasing, serious, fun and downright empowering. Remember, you are marvellous and I thank you for being you.
