About the Book  - Fragments of Time

Holding It Together Apart has been encouraging creative practice as a means of sustaining mental and emotional wellbeing throughout a year of the pandemic in Ireland. We have collated this collection of poetry and prose from the winning entries of our creative writing competitions which sprung from the creative writing workshops we produced in association with life coach and writer Anne Tannam. The book will showcase the creative responses from writers both young and old and who have wowed our judges with the sensitivity and creativity of their literary responses to win our creative writing competitions over the past 12 months.
