The Attic Sessions #9. The Story House

We are joined by the women behind Ireland’s first taught residential writing workshop, Margaret O’Brien and Nollaig Brennan.

The Story House has been in existence since 2014 and is modelled on the UK’s Arvon Foundation. We talk about how it came about and what the experience of attending a Story House course is like.
