Join us on Thursday, 27 October, for a full day of the macabre and the ghostly! From 12pm until 4.30pm we are hosting Dublin Gothic: Haunted Legacies Symposium, an interdisciplinary symposium which will mark the launch of the online exhibition Dublin Gothic curated by Dr. Katie Mishler. Dublin Gothic: Haunted Legacies will bring together experts in digital technology, heritage work, and literary theory to discuss legacies of the weird and uncanny in Dublin, Ireland and beyond. Then at 8pm we present Dublin Gothic: SPECTRE (sold out). For this event, some of the best voices of Irish crime fiction and supernatural storytelling, John Connolly, Sinéad Crowley, and Liz Nugent, will read from their work, set against haunting soundscapes by Irish musician Fears.
In the second edition of NovelTeens, author Dave Rudden talks about how to create a compelling antagonist for your story. What is it that makes a villain really stand out? And how do they put pressure on your story’s heroes?
Today’s theme is Stuff and Nonsense: join writer Sarah Webb to create some funny and whacky stories, word games and poems!
