Selina Guinness: Field Notes, Writing Workshop

Friday 6th October

A workshop about thinking in spaces and writing in places

Led by writer Selina Guinness, who is a lecturer in English at IADT, Dun Laoghaire and an experienced facilitator of creative writing. Her memoir, The Crocodile by the Door, was shortlisted for the UK Costa Book Awards (2012), and the BGE Irish Book Awards (2012). She publishes creative non-fiction and reviews in The Dublin Review, The Irish Times, and elsewhere.  

In this workshop, you will be invited to consider the structural elements of a room - doors and windows as framing devices; alongside the less tangible elements: light, smell, perspective - and using a series of exercises, we will write our way into and beyond the room. Come with paper and pencil, notebook and pen, as we explore how one little room can seem an everywhere.  

Part of the Thinking Living Dwelling exhibition:  Presented at The Dock in collaboration with The Green Door Festival and Iron Mountain Literature Festival 

This event is free, please book.
