Claire Keegan, internationally acclaimed author and teacher of creative writing, will run a two day fiction workshop in Belfast. This weekend will concentrate on works-in-progress submitted by the participants.

Manuscripts (novel excerpt or short story of up to 3,000 words) are due on December 27, distributed to every participant, and read with care by all.

Keegan will spend between 3-5 hours on each text before the workshop begins, and will then examine and discuss every text with the group during the weekend.

Discussion will include the structure of a narrative, paragraph structure, time, tension, drama, melodrama, statement,description, suggestion, conflict, character, humour, point of view, place, time and setting.

The aim, always, is to help each author with the next draft. The weekend will be of particular interest to those who write, teach, read or edit fiction — but anyone with an interest in how fiction works,improving their prose and/or helping others to do so, is welcome to attend. While most participants like to submit a manuscript, this is not a requirement.
