Creative Writing Workshop with Alan McMonagle
Starts: Sat 4 Apr 2020
Time: 1:00pm – 5:00pm
Duration: 4 hours
Location: Roscommon Arts Centre
In partnership with ROSCOMMON ARTS CENTRE
Introducing a mix of theory, writing prompts and group discussion, this half-day course will steer participants through the elements of an effective piece of writing. Referencing proven masters, we will examine beginnings and endings; voice, tone and point-of-view; characterisation and dialogue; language and setting; and, of course, 'the muddle'.
Alan McMonagle has written for radio and published two collections of short stories (Liar Liar and Psychotic Episodes). His first novel, Ithaca, was published by Picador in 2017 and a second novel (Laura Cassidy’s Walk Of Fame) will appear in March 2020.
