The Story House Ireland was founded in 2014 by AWA Affiliate Margaret O’Brien with Nollaig Brennan.

Unique in Ireland, it provides residential writing courses open to anyone who wishes to write. TSH is a fusion of the work of Pat Schneider (USA), founder of AWA, and John Moat (UK), founder of The Arvon Foundation, and is built on a belief that writing can change lives.

For the background of TSH, please visit:

  • A recent interview with writer Lia Mills on her blog Libran Writer
  • A recent filmed interview with poet Nessa O’Mahony on her Attic Sessions TV
  • Margeret O’Brien’s Open Letter to President Higgins, which led to Nollaig and Margaret meeting, which then directly led to TSH coming into being
