On Plot with Toby Litt

The fourth of our key workshops on refining your work and refreshing the fundamentals of short story writing.

Come prepared to explore text before and during the session, to write, reflect and take away exercises to strengthen your work. Exercises for the month ahead will also be provided.

Toby Litt is one of the most innovative novelists and short story writers in the UK, winning numerous awards and working across a variety of forms and genres. He teaches creative writing at Birkbeck, University of London.
