Irish writer to lead workshop sessions in Burntwood

Irish writer Patrick Kearney is inviting people from across Burntwood to join a workshop at the Old Mining College Centre.

The Pen2Paper sessions will begin on Wednesday (September 11) from 7.30pm to 9.30pm at the Queen Street building.

The workshop will run for eight weeks.

“I am looking forward to writing with local writers from across Burntwood, Chasetown, Chase Terrace, Ogley Hay, and perhaps from further afield,” Patrick said.

“I know from speaking with a local historian that the greater Burntwood area has a rich social history, so I am expecting to hear and read a lot of interesting material from local writers about the past as well as more contemporary stories.

“My workshop is designed for writers starting out on their journey as a writer and for the more experienced writer too as we can all learn from each other.

“We will experiment writing poetry and prose, and will also explore the many new opportunities for writers to get their work published and into competitions.”

Patrick has been writing creatively for 20 years and has had numerous works published and several plays successfully produced. His first short film also won a prestigious film award in Ireland.
