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 and he is the author of nine books. His latest is a novel called Terry Brankin Has A Gun (Merrion). The novel addresses the danger of the past disrupting the peace - the legacy issue - and the moral compromises which sustain the peace. He is a regular contributor to political discussion and no stranger to the polemical himself.
