Here's a flavour of the one-to-one supports you can avail of.

Reader's Report

Have you finished the first draft of your story? Are you finding it hard to move forward? Or have you finished a book and can't decide whether it's ready to publish?

A reader's report will help you through the maze. Your reader's report will take a broad look at your story and give you lots of recommendations to make it even better. You can avail of a reader's report if you're working on a novel, a memoir or a collection of short stories. You just send in your manuscript, I will read it, and a couple of weeks later, you'll receive a report with recommendations to make it even better.

Your reader's report will give you recommendations that will help you strengthen your plot, characters, settings and viewpoint. You'll also get tips on how to describe the settings of your story more vividly. While it's not an edit, your reader's report will also flag up language and technical issues that you can clear up. Finally, you'll get a verdict on the overall quality of your story and what you need to do make it ready for the world to see it.

Begin Writing Your Book

Is there a book you've always wanted to write?

Have you an idea for a book burning inside you but you don't know where to start?

WriteWords offer one-to-one consultation sessions that will guide you towards creating a complete piece of writing.

We will explore what drives you to write and how to draw inspiration for stories from your own life, your interests and your passions.

Following your session, you will receive a report full of recommendations that will help you forge ahead with your story. It'll suggest a structure for your story and outline some activities you can do to develop your ideas.

The recommendations in this report will help you turn your idea into a story that people will want to read.

Creative Writing Workshops

Our writing workshops give everyone an opportunity to experience the joy of words and stories, no matter what your life circumstances are.

Children’s Writing Workshops

WriteWords offers writing workshops for children aged from seven to twelve.

These fun, themed workshops tie in with major school holidays like Easter, summer, Halloween and Christmas as well as mid-term workshops.

We've branched out into offering these workshops online, so people can take part via Zoom from every corner of Ireland – and the world.

Your children will create characters, travel through time into weird and wonderful worlds, and enjoy a feast for the senses. Along the way, they'll learn valuable storytelling and language skills.

We also offer workshops in primary schools and we’ll fit our material and the length of the workshops to suit your school’s timetable and needs.

Online Writing Workshops

In this brave new world we're now living in, WriteWords is delighted to bring you online Zoom creative writing courses.

We'll deliver six two-hour creative writing modules, each one concentrating on a different storytelling skill, such as character creation, plotting and point of view.

At the end of the course, you'll be invited to submit a short piece of writing and receive feedback on it. Each session will be recorded, so you can take part in them live or at your leisure. We can adapt these courses to the needs of an organisation. For example, we showed members of the Irish Ethical Celebrants Society how to make a splash in their ceremonies with creative writing.
