Course description

10am to 4.30pm.

Claire Keegan, internationally acclaimed author and teacher of creative writing, will demonstrate and explore the mechanics of fiction-writing and narrative structure using stories by Chekhov and Raymond Carver.
Participants will study:
1. The Lady with the Little Dog, by Anton Chekhov, translated by Garnett. https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/The_Lady_with_the_Dog
2. “Chef’s House” by Raymond Carver http://losarciniegas.blogspot.com/2011/07/raymond-carver-chefs-house.html
Discussion will include the narrative structure, desire, time, paragraph structure, tension versus drama, statement, suggestion, conflict, character, humour, place and point of view. The day will be of particular interest to those who write, teach, read or edit prose — but anyone with an interest in reading or how fiction works is most welcome to attend.
Booking is essential. Email Centrallibrary@dublincity.ie or phone 01 8734333
