Writing Short Fiction FAQs
What Is It?
Writing Short Fiction is a new, distance-learning version of a popular short story-writing course which usually runs at Ink@84 Bookshop in Highbury, London. The course aims to help you uncover the short stories hiding inside of you and give you the tools you need to transfer them from your imagination to the page! We will focus on a different element of short story writing each week, including finding stories, creating characters, showing and telling, dialogue, description and editing. You will also learn to read ‘as a writer’, helping you see short stories in a different way and apply the techniques you uncover to your own writing.
