• On Saturday, October 13, 2012, Jane Mitchell, award-winning author and Regional Advisor, presented a day-long workshop in Dublin on writing for children. This practical, hands-on workshop took place at the offices of Children’s Book Ireland with 8 enthusiastic participants and we all learned lots from Jane Mitchell’s excellent day!  
  • Our meet-ups in Cork are becoming very popular with locally based writers and illustrators! Here are a few of our members and members-to-be in the library after a recent meet-up.
