Fighting words

image (1)Mr Dowling’s 2O English class attended a creative writing workshop on Monday the 7th March. It was facilitated by Fighting Words who were founded by celebrated Irish writer Roddy Doyle. 

The experience was a very enjoyable one as a group dialogue exercise was followed by individual story writing. Under the watchful eye of very helpful mentors each student was able to use the dialogue exercise to create their own stories. 

 

At the end of the session each student had the opportunity to read their stories aloud to the rest of the group. This experience will strongly help 2O’s creative writing in the future.
