About this event

Can you tell a story in less than 500 words? David Gaffney thinks you can, and in this workshop, you will learn how to reduce ideas to an ultra-short format, how to condense, yet keep your story effective, powerful and easy to understand, how to manage character, description, point of view and dialogue in the ultra short story, and how to reduce a thousand words to 150 without losing a thing. Full of practical, fun exercises, this session will leave you wondering why anything has to be longer than a side of A4.

Bio

David Gaffney lives in Manchester. He is the author of the novels Never Never (2008) and All The Places I've Ever Lived ( 2017) plus short story collections Sawn-Off Tales (2006), Aromabingo (2007), The Half-Life of Songs (2010) and More Sawn-Off Tales (2013). The Guardian said: ‘One hundred and fifty words by Gaffney are more worthwhile than novels by a good many others.’ His graphic novel with Dan Berry, The Three Rooms In Valerie's Head, was published in 2018 on Top Shelf, and David and Dan's second graphic novel Rivers came out 2021. His next novel, Out Of The Dark, is out in January 2022 See www.davidgaffney.org for more
