Description

Starts: Tues 11 Sept 2018
Time: 7.30pm – 9.30pm
Duration: 6 Weeks

This is a practical course for writers who are part way through writing a novel. Participants will workshop together to further the progress of their manuscripts, as well as engage in discussions on a daily topic such as characterisation, dialogue, drama, etc., which are designed to strengthen the quality of their writing. More than twenty past participants of this course have secured book deals.

Conor Kostick is the author of a number of successful books. In 2009, he was presented with a Special Merit Award by the Reading Association of Ireland; in 2010 he was the Farmleigh Writer-in-Residence. Conor was president of the Irish jury for the EU Prize for Literature, 2015.

Here's What Other Writers Thought:

Conor is a superb teacher and communicator. Conor has the rare ability to criticise constructively. None of us ever felt that his criticism was unfair: there was always something to build upon, some nugget of helpfulness. The fact that all of us clamoured for a second course under Conor's tutelage is testament to the high personal and professional esteem in which we hold him. – Philip McGuinness

Conor is a really excellent teacher in my opinion. He manages the group very well; is an affirming and inspiring mentor. – Anonymous
