Irish Writers Centre: Novel Problems with Niamh Campbell (Online)
Thu 17 Sep 2020 to Thu 22 Oct 2020
Novels are brave but unwieldy enterprises that can sometimes get stuck in the ‘desk drawer’ or lose their momentum. This course will combine professional feedback with peer review and focused work-shopping of all participants’ works-in-progress, helping you to learn how to self-edit, better understand your own writing, and socialise your work.

Participants are expected to supply representative samples (chapters) of their work for peer review, or workshopping, by the course teacher and fellow participants.

You will meet once weekly (digitally, of course) for two hours and each sessions will combine workshopping with separate discussions, led by the teacher, on the following topics: writer’s block/process, signature style, dialogue, drama, structure 1 (the chapter), and structure 2 (the book).

Niamh Campbell is a writer of literary fiction, creative non-fiction, and academic writing. Her writing has appeared in literary and mainstream publications, and her novel This Happy has recently launched with Weidenfeld and Nicolson. She teaches at Maynooth University and is also a current finalist in the prestigious Sunday Times Audible Short Story Competition 2020.
