How I Write: Wendy Erskine

Reading and Q&A

Date Wednesday February 7th 2024, 19:15-20:15 GMT
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.

Wendy Erskine has written two prize-winning story collections, Sweet Home and Dance Move, published by The Stinging Fly Press and Picador. Other fiction has been published by, among others, Rough Trade Books, Ration Books and The Tangerine Press. She has also written non-fiction on all manner of subjects from sculpture to body-building. Join Wendy for a reading and Q&A session, along with an opportunity to ask her questions about the art and craft of short-form prose.

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.
