WORD FACTORY PRESENTS:

SENSE AND SENSUALITY: Short Story Course 2019/20

An exclusive course of six masterclasses with award-winning practitioners Cynan Jones, Stella Duffy, Tessa Hadley, Leone Ross, Tania Hershman and Ian Sansom, aimed at reconnecting you with the sensuality and physicality of writing.

Curated by writer and Word Factory founder and director Cathy Galvin, founder of the Sunday Times Short Story Award and a judge of leading literary prizes, this course will prepare you for the motivation, discipline and practicality of refining your work and getting it published.

There are only twelve special full course places available. Your full course ticket offers savings across the six sessions of £21 for non-members and £69 for members.

To make the most of the course, be prepared to do some background reading and undertake writing tasks at and between the sessions. There will be spaces for you to discuss your work with other attendees before and after sessions. We will invite you to read your work at a special reading salon in July 2020.

Class size limited to 25. Of these, 12 are reserved for people booking the full course, All Six Masterclasses.
