Course Outline

Introducing the second workshop in our Connections Through Literature Series in conjunction with Kildare Libraries, Fragmenting Experiences, Fragmented Structures with Roe McDermott.
A course exploring the literary fragment, and how to write complex, personal experiences. Fragmentation is the process of breaking, of separating, of becoming multiple. To write from the fragments is to embrace this multiplicity, to eschew the idea that an experience, a voice, an idea must be whole, linear, unified in order to be worthy. In this course we’ll experience the power of fragmentation in experience, voice and structure, embracing and embodying the cracks and separations that naturally occur in ourselves, our communities, and our voices. The course will explore experiences that fragment us and examine different ways to utilise fragments within your writing structure.
