Creative Writing Program

This 4-week intensive Creative Writing Program is taught by distinguished Notre Dame faculty, Dionne Bremyer and Irish faculty who will encourage students to find their writing voice & connect to larger issues in contemporary writing.

The course will feature creative writing instruction including lectures, discussions, workshopping, and critiques of students' work. In the setting of Kylemore and Galway, students will reflect upon their peers' fiction, poetry, scripts and/or hybrid writing. Students will explore the west of Ireland through the cultural immersion program and a wide variety of excursions through Yeats’ homeland and along the wild Atlantic way. This summer program offers students a unique opportunity, with ample time and space, to deep dive into the Irish literary landscape and hone their craft.
