A workshop about thinking in spaces and writing in places. In this workshop, you will be invited to consider the structural elements of a room – doors and windows as framing devices; alongside the less tangible elements: light, smell, perspective – and using a series of exercises, we will write our way into and beyond the room. Come with paper and pencil, notebook and pen, as we explore how one little room can seem an everywhere.
Led by writer Selina Guinness, who is a lecturer in English at IADT, Dun Laoghaire and an experienced facilitator of creative writing. Her memoir, The Crocodile by the Door, was shortlisted for the UK Costa Book Awards (2012), and the BGE Irish Book Awards (2012). She publishes creative non-fiction and reviews in The Dublin Review, The Irish Times, and elsewhere.
