We will explore how to create intriguing characters, the importance of point of view, and how to write believable dialogue, as well as considering the importance of conflict, and how to effectively use setting. With the aid of writing prompts, and through analysing the work of many leading short story writers, participants will have the chance to put into practise what they have learned, and will receive feedback on their work in a fun and supportive environment.
