A miracle in a matchbox
Finding your story
Monday November 25th - Saturday November 30th 2019
A good story knows how long (or short) it wants to be, but seeing that can prove elusive. This course will help you focus; to cut to the chase of your narrative, encouraging you to take risks and dig for the gold in what you write. Whether you’re up and running as a writer or just starting out, we’ll guide you towards being your own best critic, so you can recognise where your story really is and have the confidence to pursue it. Participants are invited to submit up to 2,000 words of a work-in-progress, to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by 25 October 2019. This is entirely optional.
