GALWAY WRITER Charlie Adley’s popular Craft of Writing Course returns in April and is open to anyone who wants to improve their writing skills, from beginners to published novelists.
The course takes place in the Westside Resource Centre, beside the church and library, on Thursdays from April 6 to May 25, from 7.15pm to 9pm. Participants will be shown how to overcome fear and write a first draft; develop characters, structure, plot and voice; and how to use shape, pace, tense and dialogue. There will also be advice on how to sell your writing.
“Just as artists must first learn how to draw a straight line and then a circle, all writers benefit from learning the craft of writing. Anyone can learn this craft," says Charlie. "There is no mystery to it.”
The cost is €120/110. Places are limited and early booking is advised through 091 - 579048 or 085 - 7294204, or email [email protected].
