Course description

From Sarah Bryne ((https://www.islandsedgepoetry.net/poets-a-z/sarah-byrne/, https://www.irishtimes.com/culture/books/the-well-review-an-arts-journal-springs-up-in-cork-1.2967911 ):

“Art is the nearest thing to life; it is a mode of amplifying experience and extending our contact with our fellow-men beyond the bounds of our personal lot.” George Eliot

We are all complex characters, but our day-to-day interactions often prevent us from saying and acting how we truly feel. The complexity of human nature can be illuminated and explored in our writing. It can be difficult to access and understand certain parts of our behavior and personality. This can make writing about them very challenging.

This workshop will focus on how we can develop a fluency at listening to voices that are not our own and how this benefits our self-listening skills. We will consider the elastic, destructive and transformative nature of human character. This course will be beneficial for fiction writers and non-fiction writers of all genres, particularly writers interested in commencing work on difficult subject matter.
