Next it was on to the Kids Creative writing workshop, the class was given by writer Paddy O’Byrne, and I personally found it to be very interesting. The kids after been given some difficult topics produced some excellent stories during the class. Its amazing how the imagination of children is so unrestricted. Some of the kids really got stuck into their topics, and the follow on discussions where Paddy helped expand some of the writing were truly inspiring. Hopefully we may have uncovered some future writers.
