Starting this month, Galway Arts Centre presents a daytime class for all those beginner and continuing creative writing students out there, facilitated by Susan Millar DuMars.
Susan Millar DuMars writes both poetry and fiction. A collection of her stories, Lights In The Distance, was published in December 2010 by Doire Press; she has published three collections of poetry, Big Pink Umbrella (2008), Dreams For Breakfast (2010) and The God Thing (2013), all with Salmon Poetry. Her latest book of poems, Bone Fire, published by Salmon Poetry, was launched at this year’s Cúirt Festival of International Literature. She is also co-organiser of the Over The Edge reading series which specifically promotes new writers. Susan edited the anthology Over the Edge – The First Ten Years, published by Salmon, which includes work by 47 writers who have published a first book since they did a reading at an Over The Edge: Open Reading in Galway City Library.
The class is suitable for both beginning and continuing creative writing students, working in either poetry or fiction. Students will spend their weeks responding to writing exercises designed to inspire, rather than inhibit. In class, they will receive gentle feedback on their work from their classmates and from the teacher.
The class takes place on Monday afternoons, 2.30pm-4pm, commencing on Monday, 16 January. It runs for 10 weeks. The cost to participants is €110 with a €100 concession price. Booking is essential as places are limited.
