This event is part of the first ever Hillsborough Festival of Literature and Ideas.
Mia Gallagher will explore what goes into making a novel. She will discuss the most common challenges (and misconceptions) around novel-writing and offer tools to help participants move forward in their process. This workshop is targeted primarily at people currently writing a novel, so please bring lots of questions, ideally from your own writing practice.
Mia is an experienced workshop facilitator and mentors emerging writers. Her award-winning short fiction has been widely published and anthologised. Shift, a collection of Mia’s stories, will be published by New Island Books in spring 2018.
