2018/19 SHORT STORY COURSE – Four workshops + agent advice sessions
WORD FACTORY PRESENTS:
Short Story Course 2018/19
An exclusive autumn/winter course of four workshops with award-winning practitioners, a psychologist and with a fifth linked session of individual consultations with agents aimed at honing your writing and presentational skills.
Designed by writer and Word Factory director Cathy Galvin, founder of the Sunday Times EFG Short Story Award and a judge of leading literary prizes, this course will prepare you for the motivation, discipline and practicality of refining your work and getting it published.
Your full course ticket entitles you to a one-one-one session with one of three literary agents - Robert Caskie, Julia Silk and Carrie Kania. When you have booked the full course ticket we will be in touch to establish which agent you would prefer to see but demand means your chosen agent can not be guaranteed.
Your ticket also offers great savings across the five sessions of up to £35 for non-members and £85 for members.
To make the most of the course, be prepared to do some background reading and undertake writing tasks at and between the sessions. There will be spaces for you to discuss your work with other attendees before and after sessions. We will invite you to read your work at a special reading salon in July 2019.
Class size limited to 25 places for the workshops. 18 places on the agent advice sessions.
