What will your day look like?
You'll be greeted very warmly by writers, storytellers and artists from all walks of life. This support group will be your safety net throughout the day (and hopefully, outside class, in future too!) You'll introduce yourself to the group in a casual way, talking about what means the most to you. Lawrence sir will proceed to bring out several writing exercises to get those blank pages filled with exciting stories and practical examples of how to get those now-filled pages to be good enough for publishers and agents to take seriously.
Only to stop for a lunch break where we enjoy finger-licking Bengali thali: with khichdi, chorchori, tomato chutney and vegan kheer.
The journey will then progress to sharing your own authentic voice with the creative tribe.
Afternoon break includes coffee and orange cake.
At the final leg of the workshop, we'll touch upon how to seize opportunities for your work to get in front of editors, agents and publishers.
What is flash fiction?
Flash Fiction is one of the most popular genres in the writing world. Writers like Ernest Hemingway, Joyce Carol Oates and Franz Kafka are revered by readers around the world for their contribution to this short fictional genre.
This micro-fictional genre uses 1000 words or less to tell an impactful story, think of it as the 'twitter' of the literary universe.
For any aspiring writers out there, this genre can be great to play with. One can be as creative as they like with the characters and the plot, using less words and telling more.
