McGonigle will offer short writing exercises and will lead a discussion using examples of English-language literature, including his own book about Bulgarian 20 c. history, The Corpse Dream of Nikola Petkov (Ciela, 2019)
Participants are encouraged to bring a summary of their work in English or an excerpt for discussion. The workshop facilitator will be available for individual consultations the following Saturday, the 28th.
