Event description

Description

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

In this instalment of our Lilliput 35 workshops, Adrian Duncan, author of Love Notes From a German Building and the upcoming A Sabbatical in Leipzig, will host a four-hour writing course at The Lilliput Press focusing on description and interruption in short stories. Participants will look at the work of Flannery O'Connor, Daniil Kharms, Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Katherine Mansfield, among others.

During the day, participants will also be given the opportunity to workshop their own writing and carry out in-class exercises.

Don’t miss this opportunity to explore short stories with one of Ireland’s strongest emerging voices in fiction.


Adrian Duncan is a Berlin-based Irish visual artist who originally trained as a structural engineer. His short-form fiction has appeared in The Stinging Fly, gorse, The Moth, The Dublin Review and Meridian (US), among others. His debut novel, Love Notes from a German Building Site (2019) was published by The Lilliput Press (IRE) and Head of Zeus (GB).
