Project Outline

Over the last number of years I have worked with chidren to make their own books. We usually start by creating stories. Collaboratively we invent charachters and imagine what kind of creatures they are, where they live, who their friends are, what their favourite food is etc etc. Then we look at different ways of binding books and make our own. Workshops usually end with a story time where children can share their books and stories. There workshops have been organised as part of the Children’s Book festival in Cork, Kerry and Clare. I also run annual workshops in conjunction with Listowel Writers Week.
