Writing for Young People
Monday 20th - Saturday 25th February 2017
Lisnavagh House, Co. Carlow
Join experienced and award winning writers, Sheena Wilkinson and E.R. Murray, for a week-long residential course that will guide you through the art and craft of writing for young people. Through relevant writing exercises, group discussion and one-to-one sessions, you will gain practical knowledge that you can apply to your own work in progress. Patricia Forde, author and vice-chair of Children’s Books Ireland, will join the group midweek as guest writer, with readings and more conversations about writing and the world of publishing. This course is aimed at anyone interested in writing fiction for young people and is limited to 12 participants. From the art of re-drafting to navigating the contemporary publishing world, we will help you to develop as a writer in this exciting genre.
Among the areas to be covered are:
Voice and point of view,
Plot and structure,
Editing: the art of rewriting,
Submissions and the market.
One-to-one sessions will also be held to focus on your work in progress. Assistance may be available from your local Arts Office to attend this course.
