Event description
One Day Flash Fiction Workshop with Bestselling Author Claire Fuller

About this Event

Award-winning author Claire Fuller (Bitter Orange, Swimming Lessons & Our Endless Numbered Days) leads a fast-action one day workshop in her home city of Winchester on how to create a compelling piece of flash fiction.

What is Flash Fiction?

Flash Fiction is a fictional work of extreme brevity that still offers plot and character development. There are many different versions but the essence is telling a story in just a few short paragraphs. The genre has become extremely popular in recent years with a proliferation of competitions and publications aimed specifically at it.

Is this event for me?

This event is suitable for both beginners and the more experienced writer. All you need is a decent level of written English, a desire to improve your creative writing, and a good dose of enthusiasm!

What to expect

This day-long course will look at inspiration; types of flash fiction; tense, point of view, and voice; setting; character; dialogue; beginnings and endings; and the all-important revising and editing. There will be stimulating group discussion, constructive feedback, as well as plenty of exercises, so that attendees will leave with at least one piece of polished flash fiction
