IT IS said everyone has a book in them, or perhaps a poem, or a short story. Whichever it may be, if getting it onto paper is your ambition for 2021, then a new series of classes will help.
The Galway Technical Institute is facilitating a series of online creative writing classes by the writers, Kevin Higgins and Susan Millar DuMars, starting in January.
Creative Writing for Beginners, with Kevin Higgins, takes place on Mondays from 7pm to 9.30pm, starting January 18 and running for 12 weeks. It is for those interested in writing stories, poems, or memoir. The cost is €175.
Intermediate Creative Writing with Susan Millar DuMars is on Tuesdays from 7pm to 9.30pm, starting January 19 and running for six weeks. The class is suitable for those who have participated in creative writing classes before or begun to have work published. The cost is €90.
