Saturdays: 3rd, 10th & 17th February, 3rd, 10th & 24th March
11.00am – 12.30pm

In his new series of 6 writing workshops, author Gerry
Boland invites you to join him in his exploration of the short story.

Another season of very popular short story writing workshops  Each session will include a close reading by Gerry and course participants of a short story by an acclaimed fiction writer. Style, content, structure,
theme, motivation, narrative flow – these and more aspects of each short story will be analyzed and discussed. There will be time for some writing exercises at each session. The workshops are ideal for anyone who has an interest in the short story form, even if they have never written a story themselves.
