The Cork Short Story Festival (CISS) has some exciting looking workshops coming up in September: Flash/prose poetry with Dave Lordan, Short Stories for Beginners with Jon Boilard, Photography with John Minihan and a Fiction Masterclass with Michele Roberts.

When: 18 - 21 September daily, 9.30am - 12.30pm

Where: Venues TBA, with most being no more than a 10 minute walk from the readings venue, Triskel-Christchurch in South Main Street. The exception is Alannah Hopkin's workshop on 'The Uncanny: Horror and Ghost Stories' which takes place at University College Cork - a fifteen minute walk to Triskel, Christchurch, or a 5 minute bus ride.

Fee: Prices vary. Please see individual class descriptions for more information.


Speaking of CISS, I didn't get a chance to blog about David Constantine's winning the Frank O'Connor Award with Tea at the Midlands - anyway, delighted for him! And for his publisher, Comma Press.
