Fighting Words is a creative writing centre established by Roddy Doyle and Sean Love.
Fighting Words supports the Fighting Words Belfast project.
Fighting Words provides free tutoring and mentoring in creative writing and related arts to as many children, young adults and adults with special needs as they can reach. They provide story-telling workshops for primary school groups, creative writing workshops for secondary students, summer camps for kids and teens and occasional seminars, workshops and tutoring for adults. All tutoring is free.
Their programmes and workshops are delivered mainly by volunteers. The volunteers include professional writers - novelists, screen-writers, journalists, poets - aspiring writers, student teachers from DCU and all the Dublin colleges of education, retired teachers and many more people who are just keen to be involved in creative work.
