On this page you’ll find details of courses, workshops and mentoring opportunities offered by Women Aloud NI members. Listings are indexed in alphabetical order using the author’s or poet’s name. Not all our members have a website and some of our members offer courses and mentoring but do not list those services on their website. This means that some of our members may offer courses, for example, but they are not listed here. All courses and relevant offerings will also be promoted via social media, so do keep an eye out on Twitter and Facebook!
