"This workshop will focus on writing short chapter books for 7-9 year olds. In the past, Futa Fata has had great success with similar workshops. In all, the company has published 6 picture books as a direct result of these workshops, with a number of others to follow later this year. The books have not only done well on the home market but they have also been successful abroad, having been translated and published in China, Korea, Scotland and later this year, South Africa.
The working language of the workshop will be Irish. Applicants are asked to –
