WORKSHOP SERIES: “Creative Non-Fiction and Autobiographical Writing” with Rob Doyle

WORKSHOP SERIES: “Creative Non-Fiction and Autobiographical Writing” with Rob Doyle

In the first of this four‐week workshop series, students will read and discuss sample texts from an exciting and varied field of writing that includes autobiography, essay, literary journalism, travel writing, diary, epistolary writing, autofiction, and other styles that can be grouped under the broad label ‘creative non‐fiction’.

Rob Doyle’s third book, THRESHOLD, was published by Bloomsbury in 2020, and was shortlisted for the Kerry Group Irish Novel of the Year. Doyle’s debut novel, HERE ARE THE YOUNG MEN, was published in 2014 by Bloomsbury and the Lilliput Press. It was selected as one of Hot Press magazine’s ‘20 Greatest Irish Novels 1916-2016’, and has been made into a film starring Dean Charles Chapman and Anya Taylor Joy. THIS IS THE RITUAL, a collection of short stories, was published in 2016 to widespread acclaim. Rob Doyle is the editor of the anthology THE OTHER IRISH TRADITION (Dalkey Archive Press), and IN THIS SKULL HOTEL WHERE I NEVER SLEEP (Broken Dimanche Press). He has written for the New York Times, TLS, Vice, Sunday Times, Dublin Review, Observer and many other publications, and throughout 2019 he wrote a weekly column on cult books for the Irish Times. His next book, Autobibliography, will be published later in 2021.
