In his hugely acclaimed novel Mayflies, Andrew O'Hagan, one of Scotland's finest writers, channelled his own experience to craft a heart-breaking, life-affirming story of lifelong friendship. In this event hosted by the University of Strathclyde’s Senior Lecturer in Creative Writing Dr. Rodge Glass, O’Hagan, a onetime Strathclyde student, will discuss the process of crafting a novel of this nature. The discussion will focus in particular on the creative process itself. How was Mayflies put together? How to use real-life material in a fictional context? A special insight into the creation of a remarkable book.
