The Open Wall runs creative writing workshops every second Wednesday, in Cassidy's on Westmoreland Street, Dublin, from 7.30pm-9ish.
The organisers have this to say about The Open Wall:
"After many years at a variety of creative writing workshops, we have started The Open Wall - a workshop where participants are not obliged to read aloud. Instead, we have 'The Open Wall' where, at the end of each workshop, participants can pin up their work if they want, so that we can read and discuss the works after on a more personal level.
Every fortnight a different person presents the workshop. The workshops can be made up of a variety of different exercises or guidelines using a number of different mediums (such as art, literature, music) designed to give the group inspiration about a certain topic or theme. Themes so far have included childhood memories, dreams, imagism and character development. "
Next workshop - Wednesday 8th October
Admission is free, except for the drink you buy at the bar!
