Wednesday 25th May 2022 10am-4pm Focusing on short, sharp, stories.
In this workshop participants will learn to write short, sharp, stories suitable for entry into flash-fiction competitions. Micro fiction, Flash fiction and Nanotate are names for brief contained stories that focus on paring back the layers which underpin the narrative, often with a twist in the ending or an enigmatic last line. They are a valuable discipline, a writer when confined, restricted, and restrained has to make every word count and focus on their subject with microscopic precision and this improves writing and editing practice. They can be between 5-1500 words, but are often set at 300, 500 or 1000 words as a maximum.
The day will begin with amusing ice breakers and writing exercises inspired by visual prompts. A willingness to join in and share your work is all that you need to take part.
