Finding your strengths in writing short stories

GENRE: Fiction & Short Story
The Hurst

Working towards a collection means understanding your strengths as a short-story writer and identifying through-lines in your work. We’ll look at archetypal story structures (and what you can learn from them), how to refine your voice and sharpen your prose, approaches to self-editing, and what publishers are looking for. There’ll be an opportunity for tailored feedback on individual stories, and guidance on how to approach publication strategically. Suitable for all short-story writers, whether you’re just beginning to accumulate material, or have already assembled a collection’s worth of stories.

Single room price: £750
