The spring schedule for creative writing courses at Some Blind Alleys has been announced, and spaces are available for booking. SBA is offering three courses. Award-winning Irish novelist Keith Ridgway is teaching an Introduction to Fiction course (April 17), which will look at short stories and the novel. Ridgway, the author of three novels, a novella, and a collection of stories, will publish his new novel, Hawthorn & Child, this summer with Granta. His short stories have appeared in various magazines and journals in the US, the UK, and Ireland, including the New Yorker, Granta, Zoetrope, and the Dublin Review. SBA is also running a Narrative Journalism course (April 26), taught by regular Dublin Review contributor Donald Mahoney. Writer, critic, and visual artists Adrian Duncan – who’s been teaching courses at SBA since 2011 – will teach Fiction and Personal Essay (May 9).
