Dancing About Architecture is a free, four-week, music journalism course which will take place in Dublin in November.

Over four Tuesday evenings, some of the best music journalists in the country will pass on their experience, information and guidance to budding, would-be music journalists for free.

Dancing About Architecture is about showing that you don’t have to pay €900 and get a diploma to be a music hack. All you have to do is start writing. Heck, you don’t even have to go to a course like Dancing About Architecture but, if you have questions to ask and you’re curious about the trade, it may be a good place to start. And, like we said, it’s free.

The course will take place upstairs in McGrattan’s (76 Fitzwilliam Lane, off Lower Baggot Street, Dublin 2) starting on November 2 at 6pm.

The first night’s theme is “Start Me Up” and will act as an introduction to starting out in music journalism. It will feature contributions from SInead Gleeson (who writes for The Irish Times and Sunday Business Post and is a frequent contributer to RTE Radio One’s Arena, RTE-TV’s The View and Today FM’s Last Word), Sophie Gorman (arts editor at the Irish Independent and editor of Day & NIght), Una Mullally (journalist with the Sunday Tribune, presenter of TG4′s Ceol ar an Imeall and the person who came up with the idea to do Dancing About Architecture in the first place and put this group of hacks together) and myself.
