This summer the most popular week to do a summer camp for children seems to be from 18th – 22nd July. My creative writing camp for that week booked out this morning, and I am now running a second creative writing camp for children and teenagers (ages 8 – 16) from 4th – 8th July in Skerries Mills. I am delighted that there is so much interest in my camps. It is my fifth year to run creative writing courses in Skerries and they’ve become increasingly popular with younger age groups.
I’m off to Cork tomorrow for the launch of an anthology of short stories entitled ‘The Blue Suitcase and Other Stories’. My story ‘The Runaway Wife’ is included in the collection and it will be fun to see it in print and chat to the other authors. After that I’m heading to Kerry for a week’s holiday where I shall swim, eat and read lots and lots. I may even climb Mount Brandon, if I’m feeling particularly energetic.
If anyone wants to contact me about courses, I will be heading into the big smoke of Dingle every couple of days to check my email and will get back to you then. Happy holidays to all school children, parents and teachers. Enjoy the summer!
