Short Story Retreat
7th October 2019 - 12th October 2019
An up close and personal course aimed at the experienced short story writer, entirely made up of tutorials with an optional masterclass. We’ll set tasks and exercises focused on each writer’s particular practice and help you mine theme, character and emotional development. We’ll also discuss the role of place in fiction, routes to publication and the resources that can help you sustain yourself economically and creatively. And of course, this all takes place on the idyllic grounds of The Hurst, an ideal environment to explore the magic of short stories. Participants are invited to send up to 1,500 words of a short story to firstname.lastname@example.org by 6 September 2019.
