Intermediate short story writing

Short stories create complex characters and worlds in just a few pages. They are exciting to read and this course enables students to build on their previous experience to improve how they write short stories with drive, depth and ambition. Examples of short stories will be examined to identify further key techniques and structures such as plot pacing, characterisation and narrative focus that can be applied to our own writing. Writing exercises will allow us to practice these techniques and share them for written peer feedback. We will also reflect on our writing practices, creative decision making and engagement with the short story form.
