Emer Halpenny | EMER WRITES Writer and Creative Facilitator
Building confidence in people since 1990
Once upon a time, I was a wild child but an unplanned pregnancy put a stop to my gallop; my heart-breaking decision to give that baby up for adoption led to almost 30 years building confidence and inspiring creativity through drama, writing and the theatre. Teaching led to playwriting; building a business led to entrepreneurial journalism; public speaking led to blogging and dreaming led to a novel that I may never finish because the characters are bullies and keep expanding the story! Friendship led to a partnership business in sustainable skincare, and that, in turn, brought everything to its (current) full circle as I attempt to rewild my suburban garden - I'm a rewild thing, if you like! Expect to hear a lot about keeping chickens, business, resilience and above all, creativity. Read my blogs, follow my journey, and if you teach, maybe stage my plays.
