Weeks Two & Three of Fighting Words 2022 Summer Camps

Week 2 of Camp

Playwriting for Young Writers Aged 11-13 and 14-17!

Our summer workshop series continues! Thanks to the assistance of Ukrainian Action in Ireland and The Irish Red Cross, our summer camps programme brings young writers from both Ireland and the Ukraine together to hone their creative skills and collaborate with one another to create their very own stories.

Weeks 2 & 3 of our program saw our young writers learn how to create their very own plays! Under the guidance of mentor Louise Melinn and other Fighting Words volunteers, our young playwrights learned everything from formatting scenes to writing realistic dialogue.

Louise was lucky enough to witness firsthand the quick growth of these young artists in only the 4 days she worked with them. "Seeing the young playwrights create such vibrant, inspiring plays over the course of the playwriting camp was an absolute joy. Each participant filled the space with their own unique creativity and energy and it was an absolute pleasure working with them."



A sightseeing tour of the Liberties was just one of many exercises our young writers took part in!

Following the completion of the workshop, all of our brilliant young creatives were given completed copies of their works to share with their families and friends. We are so proud of all the hard work our young artists have done over the past 4 days. We can't wait to see what other stories they'll weave in the hopefully not too distant future! 

Stay tuned this week and for the rest of the summer to all our social media platforms to see more from our summer camps!
