Noel King's Creative
Writing classes start again in Tralee on Tuesday morning, 12th February,
2019 from 11am to 1pm. They are under the auspices of the
Kerry Education and Training Board (Kerry ETB) and are open to adults
of all ages. The classes are free to all participants. They are held in
Liber House, Monavalley, Tralee (Eircode V92 NN80).
PS. You can't book a place directly with Noel. To book a place, please contact Tracy Corridon on 066 7121488.
PPS. This Creative Writing Initiative has been run in Tralee for a number of terms and participants have gained huge confidence
in their own writing ability. While there is a core group involved, we are now opening the course to new members.
Various genres of writing will be covered including poetry, short stories, writing for children, writing comedy, articles
and reviews. Classes are geared towards the interests/needs of those attending. The main focus of the classes is on getting published.
Many of Noel's students from classes in Tralee and Castleisland have appeared
in the Irish Independent, The Guardian (London), The Irish Times,
Ireland's Eye, Ireland's Own and many other publications. If you have
any further queries you can ring Noel at home anytime on 066 7184765 or
