A new site designed to help Irish authors has been launched. Billed as home of Irish writing online, Writing.ie is the creation of Vanessa O’Loughlin who also runs Inkwell Writer’s Workshops.
The site features a writer’s toolbox, guest blogs from bloggers and writers like Catherine Ryan Howard, Alison Wells, Kristi Thompson and Kate Dempsey as well as listings for editorial services, events and competitions. It also offers forums, a readers area and will offer how to and author videos in the future.
The site is supported by an Arts Council Of Ireland grant under the Councils Project Awards*.
*Eoin Purcell, Irish Publishing News Editor, was a member of the Panel that discussed the merits of the various applications for this grant.
