Autumn 2016 - this course has now passed.
This workshop is aimed at writers who have either completed their novel or are working on a first draft, as well as beginners who hope to turn a promising idea into something more. It will focus on plot, central and subsidiary characters, setting, research, flow and opening chapters. This workshop is ideal for those putting finishing touches to their IWC Novel Fair submissions. William Ryan’s novels have been shortlisted for numerous prizes including the Theakston’s Crime Novel of the Year and the Kerry Group Irish Fiction Award. His new novel The Constant Soldier has been described by AL Kennedy as ‘a nuanced, complex and gripping tale of guilt and love’.
