What’s The Story? Screenwriting In Armagh

I’m delighted to be teaching the screenwriting course at this year’s John O’Connor Writing School in Armagh, from 3rd-5th November.

During these practical and inspiring sessions you’ll learn how to create characters that leap off the page, how to structure a story for the screen, how to write a great scene, explore the common mistakes writers make and more. This is suitable for beginners and emerging screenwriters who want to take their scripts to a deeper level. We’ll focus primarily on TV and film, but many of the tools and insights can be adapted for radio and stage.

I’ll be passing on all all of my tips and insider knowledge gained as an award winning writer for TV, short film, radio and theatre, and during my 8 years as a BBC script editor

The wonderful Barry Devlin is teaching the screenwriting masterclass on the Saturday.

The festival last year was  friendly, intimate and great crack  – so many writers mingling in such a small city.

Reading At Paul Muldoon’s Picnic

I had a fantastic night reading at Muldoon’s Picnic alongside Paul Muldoon, the Horslips, Maria McManus, Martina Devlin, Peter McVeigh, Stuart Neville, Ann Enright and Michael Longley. It was one of the many great events as part of the inaugural John O’Connor Writing School in Armagh.

This was the first time Paul Muldoon hosted one of his famous ‘picnics’ outside of New York. It was wonderful to be a part of it.
