Masterclass run by award-winning writer, Vanessa Gebbie.
The day will provide an in-depth look at flash fiction, aimed at any writer who wants to start or continue writing in this form.
Participants will create many fresh pieces inspired by tried and tested games and exercises. The tutor will never ask participants to share their writing, so those taking part can write freely and focus on creating new characters, voices and forms within forms.
Participants will be reading excellent published works, discovering the extraordinary possibilities open to writers who embrace both the form and the flash process.
“It’s a stunning way of defeating a fiction sticky patch or the dreaded writers’ block!”
