A good short story is like skim milk – still satisfying and 99% fat free.
Come to this workshop and learn how to spin words into short and punchy pieces that have all the depth and skill of a novel with only 1% of the length.
What will we cover?
In this 75-minute workshop we will explore:
– Examples from both classic and contemporary short stories
– What makes stories effective
– Writing techniques
– Short stories as inspiration for longer works.
There will of course be plenty of writing time to experiment with the techniques we’ll learn, try exercises, or to further craft a current work-in-progress.
What to bring
– Pen and paper
– Wheelchair Accessible Venue
– Gender Neutral Bathroom
– Quiet Spaces
– Discounted Early Bird Tickets
– Free Tickets for First Nation Attendees
