Workshop with author Gerry Boland.
Gerry Boland is an author and a poet, with nine published books, the latest being his debut collection of short stories, The Far Side of Happiness. He has many years’ experience of leading writing workshops. In this series of one-and-a-half-hour workshops based around the short stories of John McGahern, six stories will be read, analysed and discussed. McGahern was a master of the short story form and it is hoped that all participants will learn much about their own writing and this appreciation and exploration of McGahern’s extraordinary work.
