Do you have an idea for a novel? Perhaps you’ve even written a chapter or two and now find yourself wondering how to progress to a completed first draft. In this eight-week course, facilitator David Butler will help you to workshop your novel-in-progress by examining areas such as point-of-view, structure, effective openings, humour, irony, etc., in order to help you create a page-turning work of fiction. By the end of the eight weeks your novel will be, as Alfred Hitchcock phrased it, 'life with the dull bits cut out'.
David Butler’s most recent publications are the novels The Judas Kiss (2012) and City of Dis (2014), and the story collection No Greater Love (2013). City of Dis was shortlisted for the Kerry Group Irish Novel of the Year, 2015. His new poetry collection, All the Barbaric Glass, was published by Doire Press in March 2017.
