Receive direct feedback from your tutor and fellow course participants with this online writing group and develop five stories over five months.

Whether you’re an experienced writer working towards the completion of a manuscript or looking to maintain momentum and sharpen writing skills, this clinic provides sustained mentorship and specific feedback on the refinement of your own voice and style. Participants must have had a short story published OR have already participated in a Writers Victoria Intermediate Short Story Clinic to enrol in this course.

Stories of up to 1,500 words due midnight Wednesdays 21 February, 21 March, 18 April, 23 May, 20 June

You will learn

  • how to create memorable, innovative short fiction that knowingly plays against type
  • ways to selectively stretch character and descriptive passages to ensure the greatest level of originality in every line of prose
  • sensory images and the importance of sight, sound, smell, touch and taste in creating a wholly immersive experience for the reader, editor, or competition judge
  • the third option and how it allows you to break away from archetypal narratives and clichéd story arcs
  • targeted narrative techniques to help your work get noticed, published and appreciated.

Tasmanian Writers Centre members are welcome to book in at the member rate.
