Writing Short Stories
I recently attended an excellent two day workshop run by the Writers’ Centre, Norwich
http://www.writerscentrenorwich.org.uk/ led by Dave Pescod. The sessions included the presentation of some principles and characteristics of successful stories, with reference to some striking examples, as well as exercises in exploring ideas and writing first drafts, with comments and feedback from Dave and the other participants. A list of valuable resources for writers of short stories was also provided, including a You Tube video of Kurt Vonnegut talking about how to write a short story.
