Alan McMonagle: Creative Writing Workshop
Roscommon Town, Co. Roscommon
17 April 2021
In this workshop Alan will use a mix of theory, writing prompts and group discussion as he steers participants through the elements of an effective piece of writing.

Alan has written for radio and published two collections of short stories (Liar Liar and Psychotic Episodes). His first novel, Ithaca, was published by Picador in 2017 and a second novel (Laura Cassidy’s Walk Of Fame) was published earlier this year.

Referencing proven masters, you will examine beginnings and endings; voice, tone and point-of-view; characterisation and dialogue; language and setting; and, of course, ‘the muddle’. Participants will also look at what a piece of writing attempts to achieve, and apply prompt-based exercises to topics covered.

Readers are advised to check with the venue before relying on the details published here.
