So, I’ll be teaching this for QWC on Saturday 21 Sept, 2013.
Short fiction can be as gripping and enthralling as any novel. But how do you get the most out of this compelling narrative form with less? This one-day intensive is designed for writers looking to hone their short story writing skills, and learn the techniques to polish and refine their work ready for market. Identify the challenges and tropes of the short fiction form, discover the fine art of self-editing and critique, and receive critical feedback from award-winning short story writer Angela Slatter. Not for the faint of heart!
At the end of the day, I want participants to have a story that will be (after they take on the feedback and polish said story until it shines) ready to submit to markets. And yes, I’ll be suggesting specific markets for your stories.
If you’re ready to hit the ground running, to spend a day flensing and polishing a story, and listening to me rant about the importance of editing and spelling and grammar, oh my! then please sign up.
