Carrick Writing Workshop: Field Notes for Interiors


Thinking in spaces and writing in places.


Led by writer Selina Guinness, who is a lecturer in English at IADT, Dun Laoghaire and an experienced facilitator of creative writing, this writing workshop will focus on creating a sense of space and form .

Selina’s 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.

In this workshop, participants will consider the structural elements of a room – how doors and windows provide framing devices – alongside the less tangible elements: light, smell, and 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 be made seem an everywhere.

Part of the Thinking Living Dwelling exhibition:  Presented at The Dock, Carrick-on-Shannon, in collaboration with The Green Door Festival and Iron Mountain Literature Festival

This event is free, please book.
