Meets weekly on the Beara peninsula. More details at

Virgin Slate

Virgin Slate is a small group of amateur writers based in Cork. They usually meet once a fortnight. There are no membership fees. Every two weeks the group meets (in a city centre pub) to discuss the various submissions and decides upon a theme for the following fortnight. They publish work in an ezine on Facebook. Each issue begins with a theme (a word or a phrase). Writers then have two weeks to submit a piece of writing on that theme. The writing can use any form and take the theme in any direction the author wishes. New members are welcome to either join us in the pub or to submit entries by email or post. Email us at: for more information on venue. Or follow them on Facebook: or to view a list of back issues:
