Get into the Christmas mood with a fun creative writing workshop for families. Join our Writer-in-Residence, author and illustrator, Oisín McGann, and help him write a short Christmas story. This event is sure to be a pre-Christmas treat to get you into the festive spirit.  It will be a unique and special opportunity to work together with your child, whilst creating a story to treasure - perfect to share around the table on Christmas Day

This hour long workshop is suitable for children in primary school (aged 5+). Children must be accompanied by a participating adult. 

All the children who take part in the workshops throughout the county will be listed as contributors at the end of the story.  After all the workshops have taken place the story will be made available on BorrowBox for everyone to enjoy. Each family will also receive a copy of the Christmas story created (in the days before Christmas). 

Booking for this event is essential.
