An Evening with Paul Howard at Fighting Words

On Thursday, 25 January 2024, we hosted author Paul Howard (who is also on our board!) conversation with our Chair Alan Gilsenan and a group of our volunteer writing mentors at the Fighting Words centre in Dublin.

Paul shared stories of his writing life - his time as a sport journalist, the origin of Ross O'Carroll Kelly and the tragic true story of Tara Browne.

Thanks a million to Paul for a fantastically fun evening full of warmth, laughs and inspiration

Events for the Volunteer Team!

Paul Howard's was just the first of our planned events exclusively for Fighting Words volunteers in 2024. We are delighted to host events like author talks, book swaps and coffee mornings for our amazing team of volunteer writing mentors. 

It's our way of acknowledging the amazing contributions they make every day, working with children and young people and encouraging them to create the stories that are meaningful to them - as we call it, the Write to Right.
