Experimental Fiction Masterclass

This is a course for confident writers who want to refresh their writing by trying out different techniques. The course will encompass influences from the surrealists, poetry, music and art — all creating an environment whereby true innovative potential is unlocked. This course is suitable for anyone who wants to experiment with form, perhaps those working on novels or longer prose pieces.

Due to circumstances beyond our control, Jenni Fagan is unable to attend as tutor on this course. Her place will be taken by Cynthia Rogerson.

Cynthia Rogerson is the prizewinning author of five novels and a collection of stories. I love you, Goodbye was shortlisted for the Scottish Novel of the Year 2013, translated into five languages and adapted as a BBC radio serial. Wait for me Jack was published in 2017. She is a Royal Literary Fellow at Dundee University and a creative writing supervisor for the University of Edinburgh.

Niall Griffiths was born in Liverpool and has lived in mid-Wales for two decades. Author of eight novels, and more radio plays, short stories, travel pieces and reviews etc than he cares to, or probably even can, count. Collected poems Red Roar appeared a couple of years ago, and the film of his third novel, Kelly+Victor, won a BAFTA.

Graeme Macrae Burnet was brought up in Kilmarnock and now lives in Glasgow. He has also lived in the Czech Republic, France, Portugal and London. His French-set debut The Disappearance of Adèle Bedeau was a cult hit and won him a Scottish Book Trust New Writers’ Award. His second novel, His Bloody Project, was shortlisted for the 2016 Man Booker Prize, the LA Times Crime Book of the Year, and won the Saltire Prize for Fiction. It has been variously described as “astonishing”, “fiendishly readable” and “spellbinding” and is set to be translated into more than fifteen languages. His third novel, The Accident on the A35, was published in October 2017.
