International Webinar on “Creative Writing” on December 23, 2021, at 4:00 PM via Microsoft Teams
About the programme
Cónal describes himself as an ‘accidental author’ – In this webinar, Cónal will explore his personal journey to becoming a full-time writer back in the 1980s – it is a road with many twists and turns. Cónal will explore his creative process and why his creative practice finds voice in film, on stage, and on the page. This lecture will present Cónal’s investigation of sources of creativity and inspiration – and his belief that embracing ridicule is fundamental to creative expression.
Cónal continues to travel extensively, bringing his film, stage plays, and lectures to an international audience.
“As written by Cónal Creedon, such moments resound with wince-inducing authenticity before they are eclipsed by an inspirational twist. – words soar like a bracing breeze off the River Lee.” – New York Times.
“The highlight of last year’s theatre in Shanghai came all the way from Cork in Irish playwright’s Cónal Creedon’s double-header of short plays — powerful, yet punctuated with humour, lyrical and richly colloquial. They were terrific!” – That’s Shanghai Magazine [China].

This is where his family has lived and traded since the beginning of the last century. Cónal’s exploration of this tight-knit neighborhood finds voice across various media forms yet, when examined in its entirety, his diverse output comes together as one great work.
Cónal’s observation of local experience reveals deep insights into the global nature of the human condition. Translations of his work have paved the way for Cónal to travel widely, presenting reading tours and lectures in Europe, North America and China. His film documentaries and stage plays have gathered a number of prestigious international awards and high critical acclaim from New York to Shanghai.
Closer to home, Cónal invests his creativity in local projects, including his active engagement with the ‘Scribes’ initiative – an ongoing cross-border literary exchange between North and South of Ireland, aimed at copper-fastening links between Cork city and the West Belfast Festival. Cónal has also been proactive with the Cork Vocational Educational Committee, his continued association with the Life-Long Learning Festival has contributed to Cork City’s prestigious designation as UNESCO City of Learning 2015.
