HOW IT WORKS…
IN ADVANCE OF THE WORKSHOP
All participants will submit a work-in-progress by email – a short story or novel excerpt of up to 3,000 words – by Sunday 30 September.
Everyone taking part in the workshop will receive a copy of all the stories on Monday 1 October, to allow time to read and note feedback on each one.
(Tips for giving constructive feedback will be provided.)
ON THE DAY
Each manuscript will be the focus of the group discussion for an hour.
The aim of the workshop is to assist each author in the writing of the next draft of their story / novel excerpt.
Each writer will go home with all the annotated copies of their work (from tutor and fellow participants).
There will also be some time for general discussion on fiction writing, and advice on submitting work for publication and broadcast.
Date: Saturday 13 October.
Time: 10am to 6pm.
Place: Station House Hotel, Clifden, Co Galway.
Cost: €135 per person.
Maximum number of participants: Six.
Tea & coffee will be provided. (Lunch not included.)
