We are hoping to run a Creative Writing Residencies for Primary Schools with John W Sexton.  It will be delivered online and will encompass some professional development workshops for participating teachers in addition to 4 sessions with the participating classes.  All sessions will be delivered via ZOOM. It is hoped to start the project early in 2021. There will be no cost for the participating schools and the project will be cofunded by Clare Education Centre, Poetry Ireland and Clare Co Council Arts Office.
