WORD FACTORY PRESENTS:

Short Story Course 2018

How to Help Your Story: Make the Cut

No matter how good your idea, it lives or dies according to how effectively you transmit it. In this, the fifth and last workshop, you’ll learn how to load your sentences so they say things strongly. You’ll learn how to interrogate your writing to make sure each word does a job.

Most importantly, you'll practice how to split yourself into several people to see your work from different angles.

Regardless of what you’re writing, you’ll leave this short, sharp session armed with techniques and tactics that will help you step back from your story and make sure all the words that make it up have earned their place on the page. If all your words are there for a reason, they won't want to be ignored.

Cynan is the winner of the 2017 BBC National Short Story Award.

Class size limited to 25 places.
