I know mine is. John M Sweeney, Founder of

It is, without doubt, one of the best things that I have ever done for myself either personally or professionally. Before the weekend I was focused but now I am focused and full of hopeful possibility. Sinead Brady, author and attendee The Inspiration Project, 2018

Carmel Harrington, gives more than her expertise and time to those needing to write. Her patience,understanding and encouragement (with a lovely personality) is unending. Sharon Thompson, Author

I was literally at the point of giving up writing and the weekend was just so life changing for me. I nowhave a really clear idea on what I want to write, the type of author I want to be and the ‘brand’ I want to create. In particular, I found the one to one session with Carmel Harrington so valuable. Thank you for giving me back my love of writing and for making the dream seem possible again. Brenda Keating, author and attendee The Inspiration Project, 2018

From following her on Facebook I had an idea of the person that Carmel Harrington is. But to meet her in person, I was blown away by how engaging and giving she is. Sheila Forsey, feedback from an author reading in Enniscorthy Library
