Starting in May, Galway Arts Centre presents a daytime class for beginner and continuing creative writing students, facilitated by Susan Millar DuMars.
Susan 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 four collections of poetry, Big Pink Umbrella (2008), Dreams For Breakfast (2010), The God Thing (2013), and Bone Fire (2016) all with Salmon Poetry.
Susan was the Featured Fiction writer in a recent issue of the American online magazine The Atticus Review. 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 8 May. It runs for 8 weeks.
The cost to participants is €90 (€80 concession price). Booking is essential as places are limited. There are no refunds once the class has started. For bookings, contact Galway Arts Centre, 47 Dominick Street, phone 091-565886, email email@example.com, or go to GalwayArtsCentre.ie
