‘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 [SEE BELOW 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. Booking is now open for courses in summer/autumn 2018. The first is from 16-20 July (http://bit.ly/2sNRFXU) and the second from 10-14 September (http://bit.ly/2CbrMVL) – save your place!
