Creative Writing

This  course is designed for both beginners and more experienced writers who are wishing to develop their own style and voice.

The course comprises of workshop-led two hour sessions in which the class will draw on exercises to unlock the individual writer’s greatest strengths, focusing on style, story and emotional resonance.

Participants will cover a variety of forms and find the one best suited to the individual, so that by the end of the course each will have a short story, opening chapter of a novel, a short story scene or poem.

The objective is to stimulate the imagination in a supportive environment and to foster a love for the writing process that will continue long after the course has ended.

The course is taught by Liz McSkeane, a poet, short story writer and novelist. She won the Hennessy New Irish Writer of the Year Award for her poetry and her début novel, 'Canticle', was a winner in the Irish Writers Centre Novel Fair. Her collection of short stories, 'What to Put in a Suitcase' was published in October, 2022. She is the founder and Director of Turas Press, an independent publishing house based in Dublin.
