7th Annual Conference in collaboration with

Lapidus International and iaPOETRY 

 Date: Weekend 13th/14th October 2018

Venue: Ashdown Park Hotel, Gorey, Co. Wexford, Ireland

This year, IPTN’s Conference is in collaboration with Lapidus International and International Academy for Poetry Therapy. These two international organisations will bring their experience of writing for well-being to Ireland for, what promises to be, an innovative and exciting weekend.  


Join us on a weekend of personal development through the inner world of dreams, poetry, and oral and written story-telling.

Qualified and experienced facilitators working in Ireland, UK and Wales will lead these experiential sessions. No writing experience is necessary and work will not be critiqued.
