Short Story Writing Workshop: Preparing Your Short Story Collection with Emily Paull
Duration: Six weeks
Start date: 9 March 2021
Maximum participants: 8
Experience level: Intermediate level short story writers and experienced fiction writers looking to try short fiction.
Take your short fiction writing to the next level in this course presented by author, Emily Paull. Learn about how to sharpen your individual pieces whilst also working towards developing a collection which is strong, cohesive, and thematically sound. Throughout this course, we will look at examples of short story collections that have been carefully curated for maximum impact, discuss the importance of theme and style, and hone the basic elements of short fiction to create better, punchier stories.
Writers enrolling in this course should have at least three short stories ready for workshopping, and be prepared to spend time outside of class reading their peers’ work and writing feedback ready for discussion. Each session will consist of giving and receiving feedback, as well as an instructor-led discussion on theory and craft. Recommendations for outside reading will also be given, but will not be compulsory.
