The short story is a flexible form that allows for endless experimentation. In this workshop, Julie Koh will help you develop your confidence in stretching the possibilities within your short fiction. The workshop will include a series of fun creative exercises that are focused on enhancing your ability to innovate and play with form. If you want to write unusual stories but are stuck or unsure about the best approach to take, this is the workshop for you.

This session will take place online, via Writers Victoria’s online platform.

You will learn:

  • about ways in which writers have experimented with short stories in the past

  • how to get into an experimental mindset

  • how to find your own approach to experimentation

  • how to tackle issues arising during the process of writing an experimental story

  • how to stay true to your unique voice against the odds
