creative writing – the human heart & the land

cost £20

Professional writer Bernie McGill leads this two-part writing workshop that uses Steinbeck’s writing and his links with the Causeway Coast & Glens area as inspiration for new creative work. The workshops will explore our own creative connections with the surrounding landscape, environment and nature through exercises, discussion and written work.
Open to all from experienced writers to first-timers. Please bring writing materials.
Bernie has written for the theatre (The Weather Watchers, The Haunting of Helena Blunden), the novel, The Butterfly Cabinet and a short story collection, Sleepwalkers. Her new novel will be published by Tinder Press in 2017. Her short fiction has been nominated for numerous awards and in 2008 she won the Zoetrope:All-Story Short Fiction Award in the US.
