Event Description

Workshop practitioner: Giovanna Iozzi

Short stories offer the reader tantalising miniature worlds; if crafted with skill and emotional truth they can have the power and resonance of novels.

In these workshops we will be studying extracts from some of the great short writers, from Anton Chekhov and Katherine Mansfield to contemporary voices like Alice Munro, George Saunders and Kevin Barry.

Inspired by what we read and writing exercises we’ll start crafting our own stories, focusing on: beginnings and endings, story arc and structure, point of view, dialogue and characterisation.

Students will leave the course with a completed story, anything, up to 5,000 words.


Dates: Thursdays: 16th, 23rd, 30th April, 7th, 14th May 2015

Time: 10:00am – 12:30pm

Cost: £75 in advance for a five-session course
