The Writers’ Workshop in Ireland asks you to become a traveler and to learn how to write about your travels. While we explorethe rich country and culture of Ireland, we will studyvarious writing techniques and experiment with different kinds of writing (travel notebooks, anecdotes, stories, poems, letters, and the like) to capture our experiences. Wewill consider the work of writers notable for their engagement with the places we visit. Thesewriters will act as ourguides to various locales within Ireland, the history that informs these places, and the process by which they transform into memorable literary locales. We will learn how to use our writing to locate ourselves in our journeys and share our journeys with others. In the process, we will learn about the nature of travel generally—as an experience, as a theme, and as an inspiration for a host of other considerations, including further travel.
