Creative Non-fiction Workshop with John Burnside

Description
Having conducted a well-received talk and workshop in 2013, prolific poet, novelist and memoirist John Burnside returns to The Arts House.

Drawing on works by various writers in different non-fiction genres, this workshop examines the use of the everyday, and the discovery of the marvellous, in our explorations of the “greatest wonder” that humans ever experience: the “Quick now, here, now, always” of daily life.

This workshop is recommended for experienced writers.

There will also be a non-ticketed talk by John Burnside on 4 Oct, Thu where he will discuss his creative non-fiction works. Register for the talk today!
