THE ART OF THE SHORT STORY

I’m running an online workshop on short fiction at the end of May. Here’s the blurb:


This is a six-week online course, which will look at all elements of the short story, including narrative voice, character development, language and style, setting up the story and engaging the reader. By the end of the course you should be able to:
  • Demonstrate an understanding of narrative analysis and technique
  • Recognise compelling and consistent voice
  • Develop a strong critical awareness of your own work
  • Have a body of work/new ideas to take forward
  • Understand the power of allowing the reader space in a story
  • Have a sense of why the best stories work
There are still a few places left and I believe you can sign up here.
