*Kevin Barry will serve as BC's Burns Scholar for the Spring 2017 semester. He is the author of the novels Beatlebone and City of Bohane and the story collections Dark Lies The Island and There Are Little Kingdoms. He has been published in 23 languages and his short fiction appears in The New Yorker, Granta, Tin House and many other journals. Barry has been awarded the Goldsmiths Prize, the IMPAC Award, the Sunday Times Short Story Prize, the European Prize for Literature, the Rooney Prize for Irish Literature and many others. In addition to writing plays, screenplays, radio drama and essays, he is co-editor of Winter Papers, Ireland's annual arts anthology.

This workshop will explore the manner in which honing our skills in three fundamental areas - story, character, dialogue - can help the emerging writer to make advances in many different forms and genres of fiction. We will workshop some of our own pieces and look att examples of great work in the different forms - the short story, novel, stage play, radio play, narrative essay and see the way that creative success in each of these is built up from those same three fundamentals.
