This workshop will take place online via Zoom and is open to students from anywhere.

This is a creative writing workshop, in which students will read ‘as writers,’ mining the work we read for lessons in craft, discussing the texts with a view to understanding their construction, and identifying what can be learned and applied to our own writing practice. Our readings include short stories and novels, all differently structured, some ‘realistic,’ some grounded in memory, some in close sequences of scene, others in dialogue and performance, and some explicitly employing elements of ‘the fantastic.’ In response to our readings, and drawing guidance from them, the participants will be able to produce outstanding work.
