Writing Workshops & Retreats - Literary Performance - Celebrant Services
Join our writing workshops to explore your own life story, start your memoir or develop your creative writing. Together we write to prompts, give and receive supportive feedback to strengthen our writing and improve our craft.
In a powerful circle you will unfurl your story, hear what is important to you through past events, relationships and emotion. Clarity, balance, and connection will be the gift of the examined life.
Lara grew up on the east mountain in Howth, Co. Dublin, Ireland, tending horses and avoiding school. She emigrated to the States in 1994 and began to explore writing, then joined a weekly writing workshop where she stayed for many years and finally published a middle grade novel in 2014. She began her own workshops with a grant from the Martha's Vineyard Cultural Council in 2017 and has been hosting workshops and retreats every year. She returned home to her beloved Howth and founded Howth Writing Workshops in 2019.
In our Writing Workshops and Retreats, we offer a variety of writing services adventures, written and musical performances in Hooks & Reels, an evening of story and song. In Howth, Ireland we nurture memoir, life story, and creative writing. Recently, Lara started her first workshop in Vinalhaven, Maine for summer writing in the woods or studio, a magical experience on a beautiful island. Our workshops are designed to help you develop your writing skills and explore your story and your creativity.
“Lara, the whole process of your writing workshop has been a gift.”
