Four Sundays, Four Short Masterpieces, Four New Stories
What makes a short story a classic and how do you write one?
In this monthly workshop, we’ll look closely at four “classic” short stories in an attempt to pinpoint what makes them into masterpieces. We will then work with four of your own stories (one a month) and explore ways of enriching them with the elements of a true classic.
The stories we’ll look at this term are: “Hills Like White Elephants” by Ernest Hemingway, “A Haunted House” by Virginia Woolf, “The Fly” by Katherine Mansfield, “Bullet in the Brain” by Tobias Wolff
The workshop is aimed at writers with experience of writing workshops and who have at least four stories they’ve been working on for some time.
