‘I still can’t believe what we achieved in a week,’ said Louise – one of the participants in the July FIVE DAY SHORT STORY course. Another opportunity awaits: the FIVE DAY SHORT STORY course is to be repeated on 4-8 September (see http://bit.ly/2phGmlq). Full details are on the Faber Academy website. This stimulating course is designed to be a hands-on experience, turning theory into practical effect. Learn from the greats – from Chekhov, Hemingway, Munro and others – while being nurtured and guided towards the completion of a story from beginning to end. Everyone comes away with new insights into the genre – and their tale included in a special post-course anthology as a tangible record. Each day starts at 10.00, with intensive tuition till 13.30, and afternoon writing time in the literary ambience of Faber’s Bloomsbury HQ. Grab your place for a chance to participate in a five-day creative splurge.
