Creative Writing Courses
Lorraine will be running a series of Elements of Fiction workshops, details of which are set out below. Each course will be limited to ten students to ensure writers receive the necessary level of attention.
The course covers a six-week period, consisting of one two-hour workshop each week and five assignments to be completed at home and submitted by email for assessment. Course fees: €180
Each weekly session will focus on a set topic, covering one of the essential elements required for writing fiction. Each assignment will be marked and returned prior to the next session. Understanding the various elements through practical application, together with the workshops, will gradually build towards a complete understanding of how to create stories with that ‘must read’ quality.
Week One: Discovering the essential elements of fiction
Week Two: Creating characters readers will care about
Week Three: Writing effective dialogue
Week Four: Use of settings and backstory
Week Five: Plotting, structure and theme
Week Six: Putting it all together
