This course offers an introduction to the art of short story writing. It will explore how we can generate ideas from our own environment. How important is the setting? Do we really write what we know?
Through short writing exercises and using examples from writers in the short story genre, we will examine elements of the short story such as character, point of view and dialogue. We will study the structure of a story. When does the action start – how should it finish?
By the end of the four weeks each participant will have completed their own short story.
Date: 19th September
