Join us for the launch “Speaking Words”

Shine is delighted to announce that the official launch of Shine’s Creative Writing Competition “Speaking Words” winners’ book will take place on Zoom at 12.30pm on Wednesday 18th May.

Covid-19 disrupted the usual way of service operation, which included the interruption of groups such as the Creative Writing one being run in Dublin Resource Centre. Feeling the absence, the team at the Resource Centre organised a national writing competition that resulted in the publication of this book. “Speaking Words” is an anthology of written work centred around the theme of social isolation. The entire collection is penned by people that used Shine services throughout the Covid-19 lockdowns. The book also includes photographs taken by Dublin Resource Centre Photography Club.

Mary Cregan, author and competition judge will be our guest speaker on the day. We will also showcase excerpts from the book in a special video featuring an introduction by author Brian Keenan.
