‘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. In five stimulating days you’ll have hands-on experience at 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. The next Five Day Short Story course is scheduled to take place from July 13 – 17, 2020 – see the Faber Academy website for application details..
