Join facilitator Bernie McGill for a writing workshop - indoors and out - that takes inspiration from the beautiful surroundings of Bangor Castle Walled Garden and Castle Grounds.

The workshop will offer prompts and writing exercises to spark ideas and develop work. Participants will have the option to find a spot outdoors to write (weather permitting) or at a social distance indoors in North Down Museum. The group will come together to share work.

All levels of experience welcome, from seasoned writers to first-timers, poets and fiction writers alike.

Suitable for ages 16+

Dress for the weather and in comfortable walking shoes and bring a hardback notebook for writing outdoors.

Bernie McGill is the author of two novels: The Watch House (nominated for the Ireland European Union Prize for Literature in 2019) and The Butterfly Cabinet (named by Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes as his novel of the year in 2012). Her collection of short stories, Sleepwalkers, was shortlisted for the Edge Hill Prize in 2014. Her new short story collection This Train is For will be published by No Alibis Press in 2022.
