‘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. There are a few remaining places for next month’s course (23-27 September) – see the Faber Academy website for application details..
