With thank to the writers and especially Margie Bernard, Author of 'Daughter of Derry' who is the Editor and facilitator at Derry Playhouse Writers group for selecting me for writer of the Month.
It was at the Playhouse Theatre back in 2000 that the group was officially formed as a 'writers group' and has recently celebrated it's tenth year and is still going strong. It was a real eye opener (in a good way!) for a country girl like myself but one I will treasure as this was the beginning of my journey into serious writing, honing the craft and meeting other writers each with their own voice and gift.
The Playhouse offered a variety of Creative Writing Masterclasses with theatre director David Gothard and Playwright Dave Duggan, 'Dance Lexy Dance' to name just a couple and we also completed a Eurocats community Arts certificate with the Playhouse and Omagh's plain speaking community group.
The Derry Playhouse Writers meet from 1-4pm every wednesday and have done from it's beginning, a great space to get the creative juices flowing.
November 2009, the Playhouse Theatre celebrated its official re-opening after an extensive renovation. http://www.derryplayhouse.co.uk/
