Description

Tattva Authorship Programme and fiction writer, Katy Darby, present an opportunity to master the art of fiction and short story in this compelling, skill-focused one day workshop in London. Tattva have collaborated with Katy Darby, to produce a practical-based workshop aimed at anyone willing to develop the skill of creating a short fiction story. All abilities are very welcome, even if it’s it your first time!

In the workshop, lead by Katy Darby, you will understand what makes an effective short story, how to build a character, create dialogue and describe time and place in a way that will absorb your reader. You will also learn the market for short stories and how to publish your own short story.
