WORD FACTORY PRESENTS:
Sublime Women, a celebration of classic and contemporary short story writers.
This is the eighth masterclass of our Sublime women series, linking classes, salons, our reading club and offering opportunities to hear your work throughout the year. We are delighted to offer this class during our Small Like A Bullet Festival with Mslexia magazine.
Most famous for her novella Gigi, at the beginning of the twentieth century Colette was unashamedly outspoken in her writing, criticising the conventional lives of women. Michele Roberts will discuss the impact of one of her favourite authors on literature and her own writing, inviting discussion and collaboration on writing exercises that will inspire and inform.
Class limited to 25 places.
THIS IS ALSO PART OF:
Small Like A Bullet – A Day-Long Festival
Small like a bullet, is how A.L. Kennedy has described the short story form. To help ensure your writing has maximum impact, Word Factory and Mslexia magazine are delighted to announce a day-long festival of literary advice, superb readings, and conversation – the penultimate celebration of our Sublime Women 2016 series.
Sharpen your aim: members of the Mslexia team will be on hand throughout the day to offer advice on writing, editing and publishing – www.mslexia.co.uk
