Creggan Writing Project
Moments is an inspiring showcase for the creative commitment and writing talents of everyone who participated in the first-ever Creggan Writing Project at the Ráth Mór Centre in the heart of Derry’s Creggan neighbourhood. Rooted locally, these short stories, poems and drama extracts present a distinct moment in time, imaginatively evoking childhood memories, diverse relationships and personal experiences – both joyful and tragic.
Each piece is original and unique. Some glisten with warmth, nostalgia and humour – others reflect perceptively on modern issues, concerns and realities. Together they combine to engage and entertain in equal measure.
Choose your perfect moment and enjoy this treasure-trove of finely crafted offerings.
‘Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart.’
‘Fiction is like a spider’s web, attached ever so lightly perhaps, but still attached to life at all four corners.’
‘I was working on one of my poems all the morning and took out a comma. In the afternoon I put it back again.’
