About the course
Over the course of six workshops, you’ll be introduced to the three predominant narrative structures used by short story writers and learn how to apply them in your own work. Completing set writing tasks – and receiving structured, peer-driven feedback – you’ll develop three stories to completion, and get in-course tutor feedback on at least two of them. You’ll receive tailored advice on how to shape the story and how to improve characterisation, dialogue and narrative voice.
