Laois Education Centre is delighted to offer a 4-week Creative Writing Workshop on Wednesday 11th, 18th, 25th March and 1st April) for Primary and Post-primary teachers. Based on the concept that teachers who write make the best teachers of writing, this introductory workshop will provide a creative and enriching space to empower teachers to develop their writing skills. Within a community of teacher-writers, we will identify sources of inspiration, share our ideas and embrace our writer self. All of these skills can be shared in our classrooms with our student writers.
