6 Week Starter Kit with Kevin Power - BOOKED OUT
THIS COURSE IS NOW FULLY BOOKED
A successful writer must read widely, and then get writing. Participants in this six-week course with Kevin Power will be doing plenty of both! Along with your own works-in-progress, we'll look at examples of successful writing, focusing on areas such as: how and where to start; creating your own voice; character building; handling narrative structure; and building tension. Be prepared to discuss the work of others; it's the best way to become your own most important critic!
Kevin is the author of the highly acclaimed novel Bad Day in Blackrock, which was adapted for the screen as What Richard Did. He is the recipient of the 2008 Hennessy XO Emerging Fiction Award for his short story "The American Girl" and was shortlisted for RTÉ's Francis MacManus short story award in 2007 for his piece entitled "Wilderness Gothic". Kevin is also the winner of the 2009 Rooney Prize for Irish Literature.
