WILD WOMEN WRITING with MAGI GIBSON
Colaiste Pobail Bheanntraí
Mon 18 July to Fri 22 July 2016
Join Magi Gibson for lively and stimulating workshops designed to help you find your true voice, the Wild Woman voice you’ve lost by being caught up in all the other roles life demands. Magi will help you confront and deal with the negative voices holding you back from writing the way you want to, those inner censors that stop you from saying the things you need to say. She’ll help you make contact with your inner wild woman, that creative part of you that’s so often stifled and ignored. These workshops will be filled with lively discussions you'll use as jumping off points to spark fresh, passionate work. We'll also read and discuss excerpts from some of the world's most inspirational women writers. By the end of the week you’ll be all revved up to continue writing with renewed energy and self-confidence.
Magi Gibson, who writes poetry, short stories, novels and plays, is the creator of the Wild Women Writing Workshops and former Writer in Residence with Glasgow Women's Library. She has held several Scottish Arts Council Creative Writing Fellowships as well as a Royal Literary Fund Fellowship. Her third poetry collection, Wild Women of a Certain Age, is in its fourth print run, and her children's novels are published by Puffin. She is known throughout her native Scotland as a first class creative writing tutor.
