Three-Day Fiction-Writing Workshop

Amber Springs Hotel, Gorey, Co Wexford 

March 14-16, 2020.  9:45am–5pm

A 3 day fiction-writing workshop concentrating on works-in-progress submitted by the participants. Manuscripts (novel excerpt or short story of up to 3,000 words) are due on or before March 1, distributed to every participant, and read with care by all.

Keegan will read every text before the workshop begins, and then discuss every text with the group. Discussion will include the structure of a narrative, paragraph structure, time, tension versus drama, melodrama, statement, description, suggestion, conflict, character, humor, point of view, dialogue, place and time. The aim, always, is to help each author with the next draft.

The workshops will be of particular interest to those who write, teach, read or edit fiction — but anyone with an interest in how fiction works, improving their prose and/or helping others to do so, is welcome to attend. While most participants like to submit a manuscript, this is not a requirement.

The fee for this 3-day fiction-writing workshop with Claire Keegan is 450 Euro. To book your place, contact ckfictionclinic@yahoo.com
