Finally... & A Workshop
Just back to blogging, after a bit of a hiatus, with some bits of news... the final draft of my novel has just been (finally, finally!) printed off - and its just in time to let me travel to Tipperary and facilitate a First Novel, Second Novel workshop...
The title refers to my recent novels - both were inspired by true stories, the first by an Indian Herbalist in the 1930s, and this latest work, by a medieval witchcraft trial.
In the workshop I'll be reading extracts from both, The Herbalist and Her Kind, and talking about writing fiction inspired by real events - covering research, setting, characters - and that difficult question - how much fact, and how much fiction? Participants will also do a little writing themselves.
Its a three hour evening workshop, and is open to anyone interested in writing. Organized by The Source Arts Centre, Thurles, Co Tipperary - it takes place at 7 pm, tomorrow - Thursday 23rd March.
