“I would earnestly recommend the programme to anyone I know who is interested in studying writing. Every single staff member who works at ACD – whether it be behind the scenes or in the classroom – were welcoming, friendly, and extremely helpful. The professors were inspiring, knowledgeable, and genuinely interested in my course work – and also in my well-being while I was staying in Dublin. It was an absolute pleasure being a part of this program”
