Autumn 2016: this course has now passed.
A successful writer must read widely but will only improve their own work by actually writing. Participants on this ten-week course will be doing plenty of both. Along with their own works-in-progress, attendees will look at examples of great writing, focusing on areas such as: how and where to start; creating a unique voice; writing effective dialogue; character building; handling narrative structure; and building tension. Be prepared to discuss the work of others; it's the best way to become your own most important critic! David Butler’s most recent novel City of Dis was shortlisted for the Kerry Group Irish Novel of the Year 2015. Other publications include the novel The Judas Kiss (2012) and the short story collection No Greater Love (2013).
