Creative Writing Workshop for Teachers (11.3.2020)

Laois Education Centre is delighted to offer a 4-week Creative Writing Workshop on Wednesday 11th, 18th, 25th March and 1st April) for Primary and Post-primary teachers. Based on the concept that teachers who write make the best teachers of writing, this introductory workshop will provide a creative and enriching space to empower teachers to develop their writing skills. Within a community of teacher-writers, we will identify sources of inspiration, share our ideas and embrace our writer self. All of these skills can be shared in our classrooms with our student writers.

Short Literary Bio

Pauline McNamee is a writer, poet, post-primary English and history teacher and writing workshop facilitator. She recently graduated from NUIG with a first-class honours MA in Writing. She is a recipient of Maynooth University’s John and Pat Hume Doctoral Scholarship. Using narrative and arts-based research methodologies, her doctoral research is exploring how post-primary teachers’ relationship to writing shapes their teaching of writing. In 2016, Pauline completed the Summer Writing Institute for Teachers (SWIFT) in Maynooth University. Motivated by how much she developed as a writer and learned about pedagogical approaches to writing while attending SWIFT, she applied for and participated in the 2017 Bay Area Writing Project’s four-week Invitational Summer Writing Institute in the University of California, Berkeley.  She is completing her first novel and compiling her first poetry collection.
