Do you have a teenager who’s interested in writing? Do they need someone to show them where to begin and how to get to the end?
Well look no further! Our author Deirdre Sullivan is giving a three day course for teenagers in the Irish Writer’s Centre this summer from 29 June – 1 July.
The Irish Writer’s Centre says ‘Teens will explore, with Deirdre Sullivan, different sources of inspiration for writing fiction, from books and films to personal experience. We will explore flash fiction (up to 1,000 words) and engage in a variety of exercises to get your creative juices flowing. The young writers will work on one special piece of fiction, and discover the benefits of editing and redrafting, as well as planning for stories of different lengths, from novels where world-building is necessary, to the character and narrative arc in a short story or flash fiction. Deirdre will share ways to stay motivated when working on longer projects too.’
