Creative Writing Seminar

This 4-week intensive Creative Writing Seminar is taught by world-renowned Irish playwright and professor Marina Carr. The course will feature creative writing instruction including lectures, discussions, workshopping, and critiques of students' work. In the setting of Kylemore and Galway, students will reflect upon their peers' fiction, poetry, scripts and/or hybrid writing. Themes that will be discussed will be ghosts, hearing voices, climate, landscape, and contemplation. Students will have the opportunity to engage with classical texts, Irish poets, and authors and will be able to workshop longer drafts. Readings in multiple genres will help showcase the role of the U.S./Irish writer in a global context. Upon the completion of the course, students will have had the opportunity to work and develop their craft.
