Creative Writer and Tutor

Welcome to my blog, thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoy the time you spend here.


I am delighted to say that Eileen Casey is bringing her 

'Lost and Found Writing Workshop' 

to The Red Line Book Festival Thursday 11 October 2018 

This is one not to be missed!

The Lost & Found Writing Workshop is an ideal way to explore the business of poetry, under the guidance of published writer and poet Eileen Casey. Suitable for poets of all levels of experience, this workshop explores the notion of ‘found’ poems and how unlikely sources, like instruction manuals, can inspire and provide starting points for exciting contemporary writing.

I am thrilled to have a poem included in 

'The Lea-Green Down' Collection 

The Lea Green Down invite

“The poet Patrick Kavanagh 1904-1967 would take enormous pleasure in having a standing army of poets and writers pay tribute to his work in this handsome and original publication. Eileen Casey has grasped the initiative, outcome of personal talent and imaginative enterprise, to honour one of our greatest national poets in this magnificent collection on the fiftieth anniversary of his death.”
– Dr Una Agnew
