Write Where you Come From: Using Folklore in fiction with Dr. Tracy Fahey
Writers like Darren Shan, Deirdre Sullivan and Eoin Colfer all use Irish folklore to create stories that are strange and different. Find out in this workshop how you can do the same using stories from your locality!
This workshop is taught by Tracy Fahey. Tracy is the author of six books including the folklore inspired Young Adult novel The Girl In The Fort (2017) and the folk horror short story collection New Music For Old Rituals (2018). Her short stories and poetry have appeared in more than 30 Irish, UK, US and Australian anthologies and her writing has been shortlisted for a British Fantasy Award. She gives workshops on writing in Ireland and the UK and has taught an undergraduate course on folklore and horror. Tracy lives in Sixmilebridge, Co. Clare.
