Location Online

Join us from the comfort of your sofa and listen to writers share their work, the stories behind their work, and invaluable writing advice directly from their own desk (or maybe the kitchen table). And the best part? At the end you get to ask them questions about their words, pick their brains on craft, and learn more about the business of writing.

Alycia Pirmohamed is the author of Another Way to Split Water. Her chapbooks include Hinge, Faces that Fled the Wind, and the collaborative essay Second Memory, co-authored by Pratyusha. Alycia currently teaches on the MSt Creative Writing at the University of Cambridge, and she previously studied creative writing at the University of Oregon and the University of Edinburgh. Her awards include the 92Y Discovery Poetry Contest, the CBC Poetry Prize, a Pushcart Prize, the Edwin Morgan Poetry Award, and others.

This session will be delivered via Zoom webinar, so you can take the session at your own pace, without the pressure of having your video or camera on. Sessions are also recorded so if you are unable to attend live, you will have access to the recording for a month afterwards.

I feel much more confident about short stories now! In such a short time I feel I was given such a great overview and the reader/tutor was so generous with their feedback and knowledge.

Very lovely. It had an intimate feeling despite it being a Zoom event and all of us being in different places.
