On this course we will focus on developing your short story writing skills. Classes are a combination of guidance, writing practice and feedback on your stories. We will be looking at examples of contemporary fiction during the course. Throughout the course we look at story structure, characterisation and how to make readers fall in love with your stories.
Bring a pen and a notebook for your stories.

If a course has already started, please call the office as it may be possible to join after the start date. This may only be possible if the course is not already full, if it is not disruptive for the other students and you are aware that you have missed a percentage of the course and the tutor will not have time to catch you up. This will be at discretion of the Folk House. We run our courses termly, so it might be best to start at the beginning of the course.
