You’ve taken your first steps into finding the story you want to tell. This course will help you develop those stories, find your voice and experiment with a variety of forms and genres. During the ten weeks, we’ll examine poetry, poetic form and imagery, novels and short fiction, screenplays, radio plays and scriptwriting. The approach will consist of a combination of in-class tuition and exercises and peer critiquing of work in progress. Nessa O’Mahony has published four books, Bar Talk (1999), Trapping a Ghost (2005), In Sight of Home (2009) and Her Father’s Daughter (2014).
