Seanchaí - The Kerry Writers Museum in Listowel - Short Fiction

Short Fiction, 20th & 21st October, 2012 Director : Anthony Glavin

This workshop will explore the impulses that prompt us to story tell, as well as the various ways in
which the seeds of a short story can present themselves, and the process of finding your own voice.

Designed for those who have always wanted to assay the short story, or who are already underway, the workshop will consist of on-site writing exercises together with discussion of the various elements of fiction: from language and theme to how is a story set, and how do we go about peopling it in persuasive fashion?
