Workshop: Nessa O’Mahony | Getting Started


  • The Market Place Theatre & Arts Centre 9 Market Street Armagh, Northern Ireland, BT61 7BW United Kingdom (map)

Admission: £60 (Three day workshop) | BOOK HERE

Ideal for those new to creative writing, this course is not genre-specific and will focus on developing the creative impulse. Nessa O’Mahony has had critical acclaim for her four books of poetry and for her crime fiction novel, The Branchman (2018). She produces the regular literary podcast The Attic Sessions with her husband Peter Salisbury.

In response to audience feedback, we have extended the duration of our popular creative writing workshops to two hours per class and provided space in the Summer School programme for workshop participants to work on their creative writing outside of class time.

 Each workshop runs over three sessions and class sizes are kept to 15 or fewer to ensure everyone gets a chance to participate. Participants should attend all three workshop sessions.

 Our seven tutors are all experienced facilitators and published authors.

 Spaces are limited – advance booking is essential.

Supported by the Open University.
