An intensive one-day workshop with the award-winning novelist and short story writer, Christine Dwyer Hickey
Twice winner of the Listowel Writers’ Week short story competition, Christine has also been a prize-winner in the prestigious Observer/Penguin short story competition. Her bestselling novel Tatty was chosen as one of the 50 Irish Books of the Decade, longlisted for the Orange Prize and shortlisted for the Hughes & Hughes Irish Novel of the Year Award. Her novel Last Train from Liguria was also a bestseller and was nominated for the Prix L’Européen de Littérature. Her latest novel The Cold Eye of Heaven was shortlisted for the Hughes & Hughes Irish Book of the Year 2011 and won the Irish Kerry Group Book of the Year in June 2012.
An ideal course if you are working on a novel or on a collection of short stories. Christine will familiarise herself with a sample of your work beforehand so that you get the most out of the time you spend with her. The course will conclude with a reading by Christine at the Moth Studios.
