Recently we were delighted to host Megan Wynne, who came to work on her second novel. Megan Wynne is an Irish writer and teacher of creative writing. Her first novel for children, The House on Hawthorn Road, was published by The O’Brien Press in 2019. It has been published as an audio book by Bolinda Publishers and translated into Romanian. In 2022 she was granted an agility award from the Arts Council of Ireland and a literature bursary from her local Arts Office. This September she spent two weeks at Wassard Elea Retreat Centre working on a new novel for children aged 10+ entitled The Secret of Loughmoe Abbey. Since 2007 Megan has run a successful creative writing school for children, teenagers and adults in Dublin, Ireland. She offers online classes and workshops to children and adults on creative writing and journaling for Mental Well Being.
We wish her all the best with her second novel and look forward to reading it! You can find out more and follow her here:
