WRITING FICTION (7) - MORE ABOUT CHARACTERS

As expected, our second last session flowed creatively with dynamic fictional characters peopling room D101B in UCD's Carysfort Campus.

Two bits of good news:

Tricia Holbrook's  Penny for your Thoughts made the long list for Fish International Short Story Award, 2014. We had the privilege of hearing her read it and a privilege it was.

Carol Mullan's father's book With the Dublin Brigade, sub-titled Espionage & Assassination with Michael Collins's Intelligence Unit, first published in 1929 is reprinted by Mercier Press. He was Charles Dalton, 14 years of age when he joined up and by the time he was 20, he was a valued member of Collins' team.

Contratulations over, we analysed the power of the antagonist in fiction and discussed the various antagonists created within the group in action.
