Why Popular Fiction?


If you are reading the description of this course then you more than likely have an avid interest in reading.

 

Have you ever wondered why that is the case? Why we are compelled to read about people that never existed places that never were things that never happened? And why we have that itch to tell a story of our own but sometimes just can't find the words to tell it? 

 

This course will be a journey into the mystifying and magical world of fiction and understanding what this world can tell us about our own. More importantly it will be a journey into understanding ourselves and finding the stories that exist inside each and every one of us.

This course is facilitated by Niall Walsh


Niall has loved reading since the day he first learned how in the midst of the forest where he grew up and this passion eventually led him to teach literature at the Riverside School in India. Niall has also taught courses in Popular Fiction at Dublin City University and is currently teaching Creative Thinking at University College Dublin.

 

Niall is currently working on a novel of his own and loves to write poetry too when the mood takes him. Most importantly he loves how much you can learn about people through the stories they tell and he feels the world would be a much better place if we all became better readers and writers of stories. Niall's online company MentorEng brings the iGCSE Literature & English syllabus to life and he loves nothing more than building connections with his students.
