Duration: 8 Weeks
Cost: €220/€200 Members
This course is designed for writers at the dabbling phase, the burgeoning phase, the limbo phase or the have-hit-a- brick-wall phase, and who seek a bit of guidance and structure. Wherever you are with your writing, award-winning novelist Gavin Corbett promises to give it a workout. Participants will benefit from fun and rigorous approaches to generating new material, and from a fresh look at such fundamentals as plot, voice and scene-building. Works of the masters of the craft will be studied and plundered for tips on technique. And from the third week, Gavin will provide feedback on the participants’ own works.
Gavin Corbett is the author of three novels: Innocence (2003), This Is the Way (2013) and Green Glowing Skull (2015). This Is the Way won the 2013 Kerry Group Irish Novel of the Year Award and was shortlisted for the Encore Award. Last year he was writer-in- residence at Trinity College Dublin, and this year is writer-in- residence at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios.
