Yesterday Fermanagh Creative Writing Group hosted a creative writing day. Members and other writers gathered at the Westville Hotel for a full day workshop with experienced tutor and acclaimed poet, Moyra Donaldson (

Moyra outlined and discussed the essential elements required to write a short story, offered advice about how to approach getting published and explored how to use metaphor to convey ideas in poetry.

Workshop participants asked questions, offered their own insights and experimented with what they were learning during writing exercises. And they left the session with renewed enthusisam to write.

What a great start to our Autumn Kickoff. Next stop Quiz Night on Thursday at Charlie’s Bar, Church Street, Enniskillen, 7.30pm. All are welcome to come and test their knowledge – there’s lots of prizes to be won!
