Transgressive Fiction with Rob Doyle
Starts: Sat 3 Sept
Time: 10.30am – 4.30pm
Duration: 1 Day
Cost: €80/€70 Members
In this workshop participants will look at the tradition of writing that pushes the limits of what is acceptable in literature, both morally and artistically. By considering samples from writers who have transgressed the rules of what prose ‘is allowed to do’, attendees will explore how writing can continue to be gainfully transgressive in the 21st century. Writing exercises and challenges will enable participants to experiment with the transgressive potential of their own material and imaginations. Rob Doyle is the author of two highly acclaimed books, This Is the Ritual and Here Are the Young Men, both published by Bloomsbury/Lilliput. His work has appeared in the Guardian, Observer, Irish Times, Dublin Review and elsewhere.
