This course is held on Tuesday evenings (11 Sept, 9th Oct, 13th Nov, 11th Dec, 8th Jan, 12th Feb)

This course is about the short story.

Over the course of six workshops you’ll get a handle on the predominant narrative structures used by short story writers, and learn how to implement them in your own work. Completing set writing tasks between workshops – and receiving structured, peer-driven feedback – you’ll develop three short stories to completion. You’ll receive tailored advice on how to shape the story and how to improve characterisation, dialogue and narrative voice. Comma Press, one of the UK’s leading publishers of short fiction, is currently looking for new authors for its Reveal anthology and it’s hoped that this course will unearth and develop contenders for this showcase.

    Yes, I ought to have made that clearer. I think the link in the post should take you staright through to the course but just inn case here is the web site. I should add that I have attended a course run by Zoe Lambert myself (via LWH) and she is brilliant. If you are serious about really getting stuck into short stories then this will be very useful. I had a long chat with Zoe about how stories relate to one another and she has lots of interesting ideas.
