We all have a book in us, don’t we? If you’ve always had the desire to pick up a pen and try writing something – a story, a poem, a memoir – why not log on to this online course entitled Getting Started with poet and novelist Nessa O’Mahony? During the four weekly classes, you’ll explore that mysterious thing called inspiration as well as discussing the craft of writing. You’ll be looking at subjects such as what makes a good character, how you describe a setting, getting plots right and using imagery through a combination of in-class tuition and exercises and peer critique.
Nessa O’Mahony has published five volumes of poetry. She won the National Women’s Poetry Competition in 1997 and was shortlisted for the Patrick Kavanagh Prize and Hennessy Literature Awards.
Presented in partnership with the Irish Writers Centre.
