Alan McMonagle has written for radio and published two collections of short stories (Liar Liar and Psychotic Episodes). His first novel, Ithaca, was published by Picador in 2017 and a second novel (Laura Cassidy’s Walk Of Fame) will appear in March 2020. In this workshop Alan will use a mix of theory, writing prompts and group discussion as he steers participants through the elements of an effective piece of writing. Referencing proven masters, you will examine beginnings and endings; voice, tone and point-of-view; characterisation and dialogue; language and setting; and, of course, ‘the muddle’. Participants will also look at what a piece of writing attempts to achieve, and apply prompt-based exercises to topics covered.
