Writing Workshops and Events open to anyone who writes or wants to write.

Its purpose is to nurture, create and celebrate New Writing. It takes place in the pretty seaside town of Dalkey in South Dublin which has been home to internationally renowned writers for generations. At Dalkey Creates, we would like to invite you to become part of Dalkey’s strong and vibrant literary tradition.

At the heart of the festival are writers’ workshops. They run over 1, 2 and 3 days covering a range of genres. They are designed to inspire, motivate and support writers through the writing process. We are also hosting a number of events, all taking place in locations around Dalkey which will inspire writers and non-writers alike. Finally, we will be bringing new words to life, providing a platform for writers who want to read or perform their work in front of an audience on the final day.
