Creative Writing in Dublin City Public Libraries

Cabra Library Creative Writers' Group

'In other towns, clever people go out and make money. In Dublin, clever people go home and write their books.' Anne Enright 

Dublin is a city that is famed for its poets, writers and storytellers - it is a city of literature after all.  In Dublin City Public Libraries members of writers' groups meet informally to talk about their writings, improve their skills, and to offer encouragement to one another, facilitated by Orla Ní hAonigh.
