Participants will work together to further the progress of their manuscripts, as well as engage in discussions (on topics such as characterisation, dialogue, drama, setting, prose style, among others) designed to strengthen the quality of their writing. Several past participants of this course have secured book deals. Conor Kostick is the author of a number of successful books including Epic, which has sold over 100,000 copies worldwide. In 2009, Conor was presented with a Special Merit Award by the Reading Association of Ireland, in 2010 he was the Farmleigh Writer-in-Residence, and he was a nominee for the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award in 2012 and 2013.
