Do shotguns use cartridges or bullets? What’s wrong when Cassius in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar says,“The clock hath stricken three”? This two-session workshop will explore the how-what-where of various research sources, and look at why too much research can create as big a problem as too little. Facilitated by writer Henrietta McKervey, the mix of tips, useful advice and practical exercises will show how research can bring life to your fiction (and your fiction to life).

Henrietta McKervey has published three novels. Her awards include a Hennessy First Fiction Award, the inaugural Maeve Binchy UCD Travel Award, and the IWC Jack Harte Bursary. Her recent research topics have included RTÉ in the 1960s, the Met Police Super Recogniser Unit, World War I plastic surgery techniques, and the 31 sea areas of the Shipping Forecast.
