‘I still can’t believe what we achieved in a week,’ said Louise – one of the participants in this summer’s FIVE DAY SHORT STORY courses. More opportunities await: the FIVE DAY SHORT STORY courses will be repeated in 2018 – watch this space and the Faber Academy website for details. 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. Watch out and book early for a chance to participate in a five-day creative splurge.
