Last year we focused on very brief stories and held a Flash Fiction workshop as part of the St Albans Literary Festival.
This term we shall be focusing on writing attention-grabbing scenes for short stories and full length fiction. We shall consider how to achieve this through setting, action, dialogue, pace and humour, and will use editing techniques to hone our work. Newcomers are welcome - all you need is pen and paper.
Taught by local award-winning, agented writer, Clare Hobba. Suitable both for beginners and those with more experience.
Two of our authors have been published. Congratulations to K A Hitchins, one of our creative writing group, who has a second novel out now which developed from a creative exercise at one of our sessions. For more information about her work, visit https://www.amazon.co.uk/Key-All-Kathryn-Hitchins/dp/190972856X/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1473409883&sr=1-1&keywords=the+key+of+all+unknown
