Musician Memoir Series

Preserving the History of Irish Musicians

Did you spend your life working as a musician in the era of Jazz, Showbands or Beat Groups in the 1950s, 60s and 70s?

We are looking for retired musicians, even though we know they are all still playing!

Fighting Words is providing a series of creative writing workshops that will help you to commit your stories to paper.

Who the Fighting Words Musician Memoir Series project might appeal to:

  • Musicians who would like to contribute a story to a book documenting the life of musicians in Ireland in the 1950s, 60s, and 70s.
  • Musicians who are interested in learning new writing skills that will help them to write their memoir.


  • Tuesday 26th February - Time: 6.30 – 8.30pm
  • Wednesdays 6th, 13th, 20th, 27th March - Time: 5.30 – 7.30pm

Venue: Fighting Words 12–16 Russell Street, Dublin 1.

Introductory workshop will be led by Carlo Gébler. Carlo is an Irish writer and television director with particular expertise in memoir writing.
