(Draw is on 10th Jan)




I aim to keep it simple.

  • There will be a talk on my use of writing towards wellness – How I started to write, where it has gone and where it is now.
  • This will cover; journaling, blogging, short-story writing, publication on websites/magazines, self-publishing, getting novels traditionally published and lots more.

*For the workshop. We will; 

  • explore how writing can help mental health, self-awareness, relationships and realising ambitions
  • have a short discussion on dealing with criticism and providing constructive critique .
  • complete warm-up writing exercises and use a choice of short writing prompts to start the writing adventure. 

Here is what the Well Expo Donegal 2020 website says about the day’s events and workshops.

“Make 2020 your Healthiest Year Yet! Listen to inspiring speakers and experts in Mental Health, Fitness and Wellness from across Ireland. Learn how you can implement small but steady changes to create your ideal life resulting in better health, relationships, work, and family balance.
