Event description

Description

In two thirty-minute lectures, Sean O’Reilly and Jan Carson reflect on the breadth of possibilities and potential challenges the writer faces when approaching new work or continuing a work in progress. In a talk called Safewords, Sean will address the question of whether formal problems in the drafting stage of a piece of work may be linked to the writer's own personal limits. Jan will deliver a lecture on imagination – the opportunities for unrestricted invention and creation, and the challenges of creating verisimilitude for seemingly improbable characters, situations and events. This event is run in partnership with Words Ireland, with the support of the Wicklow County Arts Office.

He has published a collection of short stories, Curfew and Other Stories (2000) and three novels, Love and Sleep (2002), The Swing of Things (2004) and Watermark (2005).
