Online Short Story Clinic: Workshop and Feedback Rounds



Julie Koh




In this Online Short Story Clinic, Julie Koh will introduce exercises and techniques for drafting strong short stories, focusing on elements including plot, character and voice. You’ll form a community with your peers, commenting on one another’s work and receiving feedback that helps you move forward with short fiction.

Workshop: Saturday 10 February, 10am – 4pm

Submission Deadlines: Pieces of up to 1000 words due Tuesdays 9 April, 14 May, 11 June.

This season, Writers Victoria’s Online Feedback Clinics have been reimagined, making them more flexible for participants. For the full experience, you can sign up for a workshop to get started and meet your tutor before you submit work for feedback from the tutor and your peers across a three-month period via our online forum. If you’d prefer to just dip a toe into the clinics, you can sign up for a one-day workshop; if you’re more confident in your drafting skills, you can opt, instead, to focus solely on the feedback rounds. This page is for those who wish to sign up for the whole clinic.
