Getting Started with Nessa O’Mahony
We all have a book in us, don’t we? If you’ve always had that yearning to pick up a pen and try writing something – a story, a poem, a memoir – why not come along to the Irish Writers Centre and sign up for Getting Started course with poet and novelist Nessa O’Mahony? During the six-week-course, we’ll explore that mysterious thing called inspiration as well as discussing the craft of writing. We’ll be looking at subjects such as what makes a good character, how you describe a setting, getting plots right and using imagery through a combination of in-class tuition and exercises and peer critique.
Nessa O’Mahony has published four volumes of poetry. She won the National Women’s Poetry Competition in 1997 and was shortlisted for the Patrick Kavanagh Prize and Hennessy Literature Awards. www.nessaomahony.com
