Receive direct feedback from your tutor and fellow course participants in this online writing group as you 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.

This online course actively encourages sharing of your work with your cohort as well as with the tutor. 

You will learn:

  • how to create memorable, innovative short fiction that knowing plays against type

  • ways to selectively stretch character and descriptive passages to ensure the greatest level of originality in every line of prose

  • sensory image 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 cliched story arcs

  • targeted narrative techniques to help your work get noticed, published, and appreciated

Pieces of up to 1500 words due 11:55pm Wednesdays 10 February, 10 March, 7 April, 12 May, 9 June.
