Creative Writing Course

Creative Writing Course

The workshop’s focus is on developing elements of story.....voice, character, plot, dramatic tension, themes and resolution.

While it is intended to explore these in the context of Short Story writing, the classes will aim to accomodate writers at whatever stage of development they have reached (from beginners to seasoned writers) and to create a sharing atmosphere that fosters constructive criticism and feedback. Writers are encouraged to print and copy their work as it unfolds, to facilitate this sharing format.

Minimum 7 participants. Max 12. - €40 per person/€30 concession - Contact Fiona Hayes on 062/63622 or 087/9376662
