Extremely Short Flash Fiction with David Gaffney
Sunday 28th October 11.45am-5pm, £50, Writing Room.
Can you tell a story in less than 500 words? David Gaffney thinks you can, and in this workshop you will learn how to reduce ideas to an ultra-short format – how to condense while keeping your story effective, powerful and easy to understand, how to manage character, description, point of view and dialogue, and how to reduce a thousand words to 150 without losing a thing. Full of practical, fun exercises, this session will leave you wondering why anything has to be longer than a side of A4.
DECLAN RYAN, POEMS WHICH SPEAK Sunday 25th November 10.45am-4pm, £50, Writing Room.
“I’d say it now if I thought you were listening” – Hugo Williams
In writing a poem, it’s possible to speak to someone in a way you can’t in everyday language, even someone who is no longer around to talk to at all. We’ll look at some poets who’ve written in an attempt to speak to the dead, or get through to someone who was otherwise unreachable, and start to write poems that say it now, as if they were listening.
