    Sat July 15 | 10:00 – 13.00 | The Galmont Hotel

    We are excited to announce that Carol Morley will be the subject of this year’s Screenwriters Masterclass, proudly sponsored by Screen Ireland.  

    Carol Morley, a BAFTA-nominated writer-director known for her startling originality and versatility, has an impressive filmography that showcases her unique storytelling abilities. Her notable feature films include Out of Blue (2018), a gripping noir set in New Orleans with an ensemble cast featuring Patricia Clarkson, James Caan, Jacki Weaver, and Jonathan Majors; The Falling (2014), an intriguing drama starring Florence Pugh in her acting debut alongside Maisie Williams and Greta Scacchi; and the thought-provoking works Dreams of a Life (2011) and The Alcohol Years (2000). 

    Morley’s latest feature film, Typist Artist Pirate King (2022), explores the fascinating real-life story of artist Audrey Amiss through a captivating road trip narrative. With Monica Dolan, Kelly Macdonald, and Gina McKee in leading roles and Jane Campion as executive producer, Typist Artist Pirate King is a compelling cinematic experience. The film will have its Irish Premiere at the Galway Film Fleadh on Saturday 15th July at 5:30pm in Pálás Cinema.

    Presented in association with Screen Ireland, this masterclass will be facilitated by Irish award-winning writer and story consultant Mary Kate O Flanagan, who works with writers in Ireland, the UK, the US, South Africa, and across Europe. O Flanagan works in the Film and Television industry as a credited co-writer and an uncredited script doctor (although she prefers the term script midwife). 

    The Screenwriters masterclass takes place at The Galmont Hotel at 10am- 1pm on Saturday 15 July. You can apply by filling out the form to the left and paying via PayPal. For more information about masterclasses, please contact
