About : Sustaining Stories
Sustaining Stories, a new Creative Non-Fiction project with writer Sylvia Cullen, took place in Ballythomas School during May and June. Funded and supported by Wexford County Council as part of the Creative Communities programme, Sustaining Stories, is a Memoir Writing project, with ten local writers contributing.
An award-winning playwright, Sylvia has also written for film, radio and podcast, and edited anthologies of new writing from Wicklow and Wexford. She hosted a series of intergenerational workshops at the Gap, that resulted in the publication of short stories in the booklet How to Skin a Rabbit. In another of her workshop series, participants
contributed to The Book of Tomnafinnoge, a collection of stories and photographs related to the ancient oak forest at Tinahely.
