Summer 2017 will be here before we know it – and promises to be another fine season for short story writers. This year two five-day courses produced thirty great tales. This year we’re looking for an even more abundant crop. Another FIVE DAY SHORT STORY courses is scheduled, so keep an eye on the Faber Academy website (and mine) for details. The Five Day Short Story 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 inclusion in an exclusive post-course anthology as a tangible record. Don’t miss another chance to participate in this five-day creative splurge.
