Join Malachi O’Doherty for a workshop navigating the world of polemical writing. How do you write on controversial topics and from an oppositional point of view – and stay out of trouble? Malachi is a freelance writer and broadcaster based in Belfast, Northern Ireland and he writes for the BBC, the Belfast Telegraph, The Irish Times and others. He has published six books including The Trouble With Guns; The Telling Year; Belfast 1972; Empty Pulpits: Ireland’s retreat from religion; and recently, Fifty Years On: The Troubles and the Struggle for Change in Northern Ireland, his memoir of the Troubles. He is a regular contributor to political discussion and no stranger to the polemical himself.
