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 scene for a play or screenplay, 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 Lisa Harding whose award-winning novel, Harvesting, has just been optioned for the screen by the BAFTA-winning director of the Channel 4 series The Derry Girls. In November 2018, Lisa was selected by The Irish Times as the Bookclub choice.
