This course is aimed at people with, ideally, some previous experience of writing flash fiction, short stories or long-form fiction, but you do not need to have been published. (If you have written stories in the form of narrative poems or plays etc, that would equally count as relevant experience.)
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE COURSE IS NOW FULL FOR THE REMAINDER OF 2020. IT WILL REOPEN FOR BOOKINGS IN EARLY 2021. PLEASE CHECK THE WEBSITE THEN FOR MORE INFORMATION.
However, if you would like feedback on an existing novella-in-flash that’s already completed, please email me your enquiry here.
