A passion for books!
Let me ask you something. Imagine that's you in the picture above...
Which book are you hugging?
For me, it has to be The Great Gatsby by F Scott Fitzgerald.
But it could also be Light Years by James Salter...
It might even be The English Patient by Michael Ondaatje...
What about you? Let me know the books you're passionate about.
Really. Because if you're passionate about a book, maybe I will be too!
This is me, by the way, Frank Foley (taken after hugging a book!).
I have a real passion for books. I love the way they make us think about the world. The way they make us think about ourselves.
Which is pretty handy because for the last seven years I've been running my own courses exploring exactly that. These are dynamic seminar-style classes that explore how fiction works and how we respond to it.
Here are some of the courses I'm running this autumn.
Pair of Shorts! Tuesday evenings, next 12th November, Whitstable.
Samuel Beckett: Two Plays. Starts 11th November, Whitstable.
Three Book Fridays. Starts 15th November, Whitstable.
How Fiction Works: A Resource for Writers. 27th Nov, Whitstable.
Short Story Club. Last Thurs of month, next 28th Nov. Tenterden.
FREE SHORT STORY CLASSES! Wednesdays, 10-11am, Whitstable
You can find details of these and other classes on this website. If you'd like to discuss anything with me call 07771-966111 or mail me at email@example.com or even tweet me at twitter@frankjfoley but if you turn up at my house, I'll start to worry! :)
