The morning continued with the first of our demos, this one from Martina. Martina spoke of the great work which she has done in St Aidan's in Tallaght on the Make a Book project and she set us all up to write a picture book about a pet. The results were collaborative efforts which amused all.
After lunch, two of last year's Fellows (Ferdia and Christina) returned to Maynooth to work with us on screenplay writing. These presenters challenged us with the form of screenplay writing and prompted us to consider how we might integrate either the method or the essence of this type of writing into our own curricula.
We finished the day with Mairead volunteering to provide the daily log which she presented this morning - Tuesday. She told us that she found yesterday helped her to feel inspired and confident; that she enjoyed the 'pure and distilled form of writing' of screen play. She finished by boldly articulating that 'Maybe I am a writer'!
