Her work is getting great reviews so it's no surprise that a Killarney author wants to share her secrets to success.

This weekend she'll be doing just that - by inspiring little ones to take up their pens and use their imaginations.

Following on from her appearance at the International Literary festival Dublin, local author Olivia Hope will be delivering a Writing for Children masterclass at Writers Week Listowel this weekend.

Since the release of her picture book, 'Be Wild, Little One', illustrated by Daniel Egnéus and published by Bloomsbury, Olivia has had her book described as ‘luminously beautiful’ in The Guardian newspaper and ‘Poetic and inspiring ... A delightfully captivating book that will be a welcome treat for readers to enjoy time and time again’ in the Irish Examiner.

Tomorrow 9Saturday) she'll be in Eason Listowel at 3pm for the official launch of 'Be Wild, Little One', where the current director of Saint John's Arts Centre, Listowel, Máire Logue, will formally launch the Killarney woman’s book in the county’s literary capital.

"And don't worry if you can't make to Listowel this weekend, there are signed copies available in Eason, Killarney," Olivia said.

"Should you wish to have a personal dedication then be sure to let the staff know and they can arrange."
