IWC Courses

21st August 2009 by Maura McHugh

The following courses should be of particular interest to our members, and are only two among many that the Irish Writers’ Centre is offering in the coming months:

From Story to Screenplay taught by Michael O’Loughlin
Many features films are based on short stories or novels. But the process of turning one into the other is often more complex than it might appear. In this ten-week course we will look at the techniques needed to turn the story into the screenplay, breaking down each into its key components. We will be analyzing the different kinds of structure in story and screenplay, as well as characterization and plot, using some well-known examples. This is a practice-oriented course, particularly suited to writers who have a completed story they want to turn into a screenplay. The workshops will be weekly, on Wednesdays 6.30pm – 8.30pm, starting September 23, and costs €300.

Screenwriting Workshop taught by Ailbhe Ní Ghiolla Bhríde
A one-day workshop on Saturday, the 19th September, as part of the week-long IMRAM Irish language literature festival.

Further information on the courses is available from the IWC web site.
