Creative Writing Fiction Continuation/Intermediate - Short Story Writing /Celeste Augé
Monday 12.45 – 2.15pm (6 weeks) €70 (8 places) *Starting Monday 14th May

Creative Writing - Short Fiction Workshop with Celeste Auge
For anyone who has taken a fiction workshop before, and would like regular deadlines, encouragement and feedback. In this workshop, we will delve into the craft of writing short stories, discussing and trying out our discoveries over the six weeks.          


Workshopping Our Writing (Beginners) with Susan Millar Du Mars
Mondays 2-3.30pm (8 weeks) €90 (8 places)  * starting Monday 14th May

This class is suitable for both beginning and continuing creative writing students, working in either poetry or fiction.  Students will spend their week responding to writing exercises designed to inspire, rather than inhibit.  In class, they will receive gentle feedback on their work from their classmates and from the teacher.  They will then be expected to edit their pieces in time for the final class.  Thus, students will gain experience in giving and responding to constructive criticism; and will, by the end of the course, have perhaps half a dozen polished pieces of writing finished.   An ideal course for anyone who wants help moving from inspiration to finished product.

Writers At Work with Susan Millar Du Mars
Tuesdays 2-4pm €95 (8 places) (8 weeks )*Starting Tuesday 8th May

Have you got pages in a drawer you’ve been wanting to show someone?This course is for writers who are at work on a project.  This could be a novel, short story, collection of stories, sequence of poems, or even a play or film script.  Participants’ only homework each week will be to read two fifteen page extracts from other students’ manuscripts and be prepared for a 20-30 minute discussion on same.  Providing generous and specific feedback on others’ work helps us to be inspired risk takers in our own writing.  Each participant will experience at least one such session of feedback on their own work.  An in-class writing exercise at the start of each class will serve to further shake off mental cobwebs, and perhaps lead us into new writing.  This is an ideal course for the hardworking but isolated writer.
