Literary Event, Mon 13 Nov 2017


What is genre fiction and why do we love to read and write it? Is there anything which is not genre fiction? In this workshop we will look at some of the basic issues common to popular genres – crime, science fiction, fantasy, horror, and what you should start thinking about in order to be successful writing them. The workshop will include a fun writing activity.

Russell Schechter is a Senior Lecturer in Creative & Professional Writing at St Mary’s University. As ‘Jay Russell’ he is a novelist and short story writer and has been nominated for a World Fantasy Award. His books include Celestial Dogs, Brown Harvest and Apocalypse Now, Voyager.
