From a young age, I have loved to write, and find writing about my worries helps me get my head straight. I came across this story about a new initiative for young writers today in the Irish Times.

Fighting Words is a path to freedom, a resource, a nest, a friend, a challenger, an oasis, a hothouse, a story contraption, a publisher – a magic door to revelation. Every year this amazing space convenes thousands of pop-up gatherings of creative writers. Every year it spawns thousands of ideas that become thousands of stories. And every year thousands of stories transform thousands of young lives.
