Online Feedback Clinic: Short Story
Summary:In this online clinic, participants will submit short fiction of up to 1,000 words each month for five months. You will receive individual feedback from your tutor, focusing on elements including plot, structure, character and voice. Participants will have the opportunity to comment on each other’s work. This clinic is open to writers of all levels.
Our Online Feedback Clinics are asynchronous, with no face-to-face meetings, allowing you to engage with the content at the times of day and week that suit your schedule. They are hosted on our private Wordpress server. There will be an optional Zoom introduction to the clinic website for those less confident with technology, which will be recorded for those who cannot attend live. For more information on our online feedback clinics, please read our FAQs.
You Will Learn How to:
· improve the capacity of your short fiction to grab the attention of the reader
· enhance plot, structure and characterisation in your short stories
· strengthen voice in your short stories
· have more confidence in your ability to generate new fiction over a sustained period of time
· diagnose issues in your drafts through feedback from your tutor and other participants.
