If you’d like to take a set of classes with me this season, here are some I would recommend:
Writing Train Beginners’ Classes – These courses 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. These classes work equally well for complete beginners and people starting to write again after a break.
next course is starting Sat 28 Jan, 10.45 a.m., NLI CAFE, 10 weeks over 14, with time off for Bank Holiday weekends and a further week off for your tutor (that’s me: ), during Feb.
Next course is starting: Mon 30 Jan 7.00 p.m. Dunlaoghaire – This course 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. 10 weeks. Further details and fee are in the linked document attached.

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.
