Description

*** CHANGE OF DATE - Due to unforeseen circumstances this workshop has been postponed until May 16th ***

Learn from Lilliput’s finest in the next instalment in a series of day-long writing workshops held in the heart of Stoneybatter.

In this instalment of our Lilliput 35 workshops, acclaimed poet and debut novelist Alice Lyons will draw on skills of observational drawing as she guides ten writers through the sense of place and landscape in writing.

Participants will spend time sketching places both within and outwith the walls of The Lilliput Press. The group will look at examples of writers who excel at capturing the atmosphere of a place and discuss why and how they do this; they will also vow, à la John Baldessari, not to write any more boring landscape descriptions.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to workshop an extract of their writing with the group, which they should email to Alice via publicity@lilliputpress.ie by 1 May.

A great opportunity for writers of all skill levels!
