Writing Train’s Intermediate workshops ( Tuesday nights, starting next week, 23rd AUGUST for a short burst of 5 weeks) are great for people who are either (a) ready to get going on some work they’ve been meaning to start, (b) have taken a class before and feel some confidence in their writing, or (c) are folks who sense that a class that’s somewhat mixed experience-wise will inspire them more than a group where everyone is simply starting.
In the Intermediate Writing Train sessions I can divide the time between helping each person who has a special interest, and teaching areas of craft to everyone, plus giving feedback on work that people are starting to produce, or are getting on with. Forthcoming set of 5 Tuesday nights will run at SWENY’s CHEMIST’s WESTLAND ROW and carry a fee of €145.
If you’re a little, or a fair bit beyond beginner, I would most recommend the short run of Tuesdays as a ‘try out.’ There will be an option for a follow on term of a further 8-9 weeks till the end of the year, working with some of the short-term group plus some newcomers.
The perfect way to try the Writing Train.
Writing Train Beginners’ Classes – next one starting Mon 19 September – will work best for people who want to start from scratch identifying their material and the forms they like by writing under direction and ‘reading as writers’ in class and at home, as well as touring through elements of the craft of all the short forms of writing under my guidance. Next set of Mondays will run at CITY ARTS CENTRE, BACHELORS’ WALK from Monday 19 Sept for 10 weeks and cost €250.
ADVANCED WRITING TRAIN WORKSHOPS
are aimed at Advanced writers who want feedback and support while they continue work-in-progress, or writers looking for deadlines and feedback while they challenge themselves to write a certain amount every week. Discussion and technical help will be tailored to each project, and the feedback of a group of experienced and supportive peers will be a great bonus in your Advanced Writing Train workshop.
Next round of Advanced Workshops at Writing Train will be starting Wednesday Daytime September 21st, at United Arts Club, Fitzwilliam Street,
Thursday nights at City Arts Bachelors’ Walk, September 22nd
each course: 14 sessions and €340.
Wednesday fortnightly Advanced Writing Train will be starting in Dublin in late October.
