I was privileged this year to be invited down to participate in the West Cork Literary Festival in Bantry, and today and yesterday I gave workshops to a group of children aged 5-7 (well, in the end, more like 4 – 10!) which was certainly a challenge. But a good one.
It is a beautiful part of the country and a great festival – a big thankyou to Denyse Woods for inviting me (and to Sue Leonard for recommending me!) I enjoyed working with children younger than those I am used to and it has resulted in a rhyming story that I wrote for the group. Unpolished but still a story!
Will post more about the different events, but in the meantime here’s a picture of Cape Clear island.
