Keith Whelan


I have a Degree in Journalism and Media Studies from Griffith College, Dublin, Ireland.

I have worked for several national and local newspapers as well as freelancing and have been teaching creative writing for the past eight years in Ireland and Australia.

Amongst the libraries I have taught in are Wyong Shire Council, Cessnock City Council and Port Stephens Council.

I have also conducted this course as part of the John Hopkins CTYI Programme in the University of Limerick, Ireland as a ten week course.

The course has also been included in several Library Programmes for Children’s Book Festival and Writer’s Weeks in Ireland.

I have also taught Creative Writing, Science Fiction Writing, Fantasy Writing & Travel Writing at the Central Coast Community College and Tuggerah Lakes Community College.
