What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
Some stories need to be told. At the end we’re all stories, we're all storytellers. Do you have a story to tell? Do you want to put it down in words? Or just share it with other people? Join our first “LIVE TO TELL” meeting, where you can exercice the art of telling/writing stories. There will be a bit of travel writing, a bit of fiction, real life stories or maybe fantasy and science fiction... as you like it. No pressure, just fun. We can follow great authors' advice or just my novelist's experience, your experience... and see what happens! Bring paper, pen and most of all an open mind! “Tell me the facts and I’ll learn. Tell me the truth and I’ll believe. But tell me a story and it will live in heart forever.” (Native American Proverb) “If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten.” (Rudyard Kipling) “You’re never going to kill storytelling, because it’s built into the human plan. We come with it.” (Margaret Atwood) "People think that stories are shaped by people. In fact it's the other way around..." (Terry Pratchett) “The planet does not need more successful people. The planet desperately needs more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers and lovers of all kinds.” (Dalai Lama) “Writing is not life, but I think that sometimes it can be a way back to life.” (Stephen King)

First meeting for our Travel Writing Book Club! This time the choice is the international bestseller "Eat Pray Love" by Elizabeth Gilbert. "Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia" is a 2006 memoir by American author Elizabeth Gilbert. The memoir chronicles the author's trip around the world after her divorce and what she discovered during her travels. The book remained on The New York Times Best Seller list for 187 weeks. The movie rights for the memoir were purchased by Columbia Pictures. The film version, which stars Julia Roberts and Javier Bardem, was released in theaters on August 13, 2010. If you have read or want to read the book, join us. If you haven’t read the book but you just want to know a bit more about it or you’re just interested in the subject, join us too! As I’ve always said, from the start, I will never force someone to read a book. But I just love the idea of having a Travel Writing Book Club sometimes. If you want to join our Travellers' Facebook page, here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/TheWildTravellersAdventures/ “This is a good sign, having a broken heart. It means we have tried for something.” (Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love) “The Bhagavad Gita--that ancient Indian Yogic text--says that it is better to live your own destiny imperfectly than to live an imitation of somebody else's life with perfection.” (Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love) “I think I deserve something beautiful.” (Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love) “You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That's the only thing you should be trying to control.” (Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love)
The event starts at 8.00pm, we will meet there at 7.15pm to have a chat about Emily Brontë and Sisters. If you want to join book your ticket soon. https://www.nch.ie/Online/default.asp?BOparam::WScontent::loadArticle::permalink=The-Unthanks-03Nov19&BOparam::WScontent::loadArticle::context_id= The Emily Brontë Song Cycle was recorded in the Parsonage in Haworth where Emily lived and worked. Captured and released as Part 3 of Lines - a trilogy of records inspired by female writers across time - this live performance of The Emily Brontë Song Cycle will also feature songs from the other records that make up Lines, promising an atmospheric evening, and at its heart, a unique collaboration between a literary great and one of the most innovative and critically acclaimed bands working today. The Unthanks make Art Folk with an approach to storytelling that makes easy bedfellows of polar opposites such as starch traditionalism and sonic adventure, glacial minimalism and heartbreaking empathy, earning them an army of notable fellow artists and storytellers, including Mackenzie Crook, Maxine Peake, Nick Hornby, Martin Freeman, Elvis Costello, Robert Wyatt, Rosanne Cash, Dawn French, Adrian Edmondson, Stephen Mangan and members of Portishead and Radiohead.
