The Power of the Pen with Cat Hogan


Join seasoned facilitator Cat Hogan for a creative writing session focused on creativity and mental health. During the morning, you will explore the benefit of Bibliotherapy – creative arts therapies with the purpose of healing – and the therapeutic value of writing. Imagination, self-awareness, empathy and conflict resolution will be some of the themes explored through fiction, free writing, literature and poetry.

Cat Hogan is an Irish novelist and screenwriter based in Co. Wexford. She has published two fiction novels, They All Fall Down (2016) and the Bord Gais Energy nominated Crime Fiction of the Year Novel, There Was A Crooked Man (2017). Cat lectures in Adult Literacy and Further Education and teaches Creative Writing for Positive Mental Health in secondary schools.

*The facilitator of this course will explore the therapeutic benefits of creativity and writing from the perspective of a professional writer. She is not a mental health professional.
