COURSE OUTLINE:

The first term of 12 weeks focusses the archetypal Hero’s Journey, which we will write experientially in workshops, using the 12 steps of the Hero’s Journey, a blueprint for all stories, myths and movies!

  • We will also learn how to edit and improve the writing we do, using particular excercies, drawing from Natalie Goldberg’s Writing Down the Bones, and Pat Schneider’s The Writer as an Artist and Julia Cameron’s The Artists’ Way.
  • The work done on the course is experimental and there is no pressure to produce a perfect book/ screenplay, but support will be offered in the form of advice regarding querying agents and publishers, should the writer wish to take this route with the work they have created on the course.

I found this course to be extraordinary. I thought it would be useful to help me find structure to the stories I write. It was much more, it was quite a personal journey; challenging, rewarding, inspirational. Siofra creates an atmosphere of such creativity, a safe space to write, a place where we could push past boundaries and self doubt. After one session, I felt inspired to write at home, so I sat and wrote a short story called A Dance with Time. Subsequently that story was longlisted for the Colm Tobin Short Story.
