Spring 2015 - this course has now passed.
This one day workshop, run in association with Children's Books Ireland, is designed to help 14–17 year old writers explore their creativity in a supportive and collaborative atmosphere. The participants will be encouraged to take part in writing exercises, and to ask questions. The course will look at character development, how to develop a distinct narrative voice, and the importance of trusting one’s own instincts. Louise O’Neill is the author of Only Ever Yours, a dystopian novel for young adults. It was one of the most successful Irish debuts in 2014 and winner of the Sunday Independent Newcomer of the Year at the Bord Gáis Energy Irish Book Awards 2014.
