Through close reading of work by risk-taking, playful and inventive authors, participants will be encouraged to experiment with styles and techniques that deviate from conventional forms of prose fiction. In a friendly, stimulating environment, both beginners and more advanced writers will examine and practise techniques such as cut-ups, metafiction, autofiction, writing with constraints, ‘found’ texts, randomness, microfictions, stream of consciousness, fragmentary writing, prose which blurs the line between fiction and reality, and more.
Rob Doyle is the author of two highly acclaimed books, This Is the Ritual and Here Are the Young Men, both published by Bloomsbury/Lilliput. His work has appeared in the Guardian, Observer, Irish Times, Dublin Review and elsewhere.
