SEVEN TOWERS SEVENTH BIRTHDAY


SEVEN TOWERS SEVENTH BIRTHDAY

We are delighted to have a reading plus general celebration with the fine folks at the Irish Writers Centre celebrating 7 Towers reaching the ancient age of seven (hence the training wheels in the picture).

To add to our pleasure we have the writers of the Clock Tower Ghost and other stories doing a very special showcase reading there at the Centre – Mount Temple students Rebecca Gibney, Rachael Meehan, Fionn Ó Maoileoin, Rey Christian Jordan Sabong and Rosa Whelan, facilitators Ross Hattaway, Sarah Lundberg, Liz McSkeane and Oran Ryan, and Mount Temple English teacher Michael Tubridy.

The book Writes of Passage Vol 1 is the Mount Temple Comprehensive School creative writing workshop. It started as a Transition Year initiative and has progressed beyond that to be open to all students. The concept for this book came out of an exercise give to all participants in the workshop – including tutor and guest writers. The starting point was a story that has been passed around the school among students and teachers about the ghost in the school clock tower. The alleged ghost of is a former student who, running away and hiding to avoid sitting exams, manages to injure himself and get locked in the tower for a number of weeks, until he passes from being student to his ghostly state. The exercise was to use this story as a starting point and to write something, based on their particular style and genre. The outcome is this book, where each contributor has one story or poem written from that starting point, with many exciting and different results

This is an event for everyone. We just wanted to make our newest writers especially welcome. Drop by for a chat!

Kind Regards

The Seven Towers

Seven Towers was set up as a not for profit company in 2006 by a group of friends who loved great literature and wanted to play a part in the cultural scene. They knew of a great many superb writers and poets, who, because of the size of the Irish Market, were not finding publishers and exposure to the public. Thus they began publishing and agenting books and setting up readings, and have continued to do so since then. Seven Towers is not supported by any grant or aid, and is run totally on the good will of those who help and promote our work. We strive to foster an atmosphere of collaboration and co operation among artists of many different genres and disciplines. We also strive to foster a strong international feel to our work, inviting poets from other continents to drop by and read with us and work with us. Not only this, but 7Towers runs readings in the US and in Britain, including the Last Wednesday Series, and the Chapters and Verse series. Seven Towers is immensely proud to be part of a flourishing Dublin Literary scene and sees a bright future for Irish and international Writing.
