The Inkslingers meet on a Saturday afternoon in the Irish Writers Centre in Dublin. They give two prompts… one visual, and one textual, and the idea is that you write for half an hour on the prompt and then read it out to the group afterwards. Good fun, as you never know what the prompt is going to be.

They are a very talented bunch, and recently published an anthology… you can buy it on line at

You can see their link here.
