Creative Writing Workshop: Writing Stories for Magazines

Papercraft with Natalie O’Shea

Do you enjoy writing stories? Maybe there are stories inside you that you haven’t yet got down onto paper?

Come and join Natalie O’Shea to make a fabulous handmade greeting card. If you thought you weren’t artistic, then Natalie will show you how easy it is to make personalised cards whether you think you are crafty or not.

What about sending your work to magazines that publish fiction and pay for it? Or entering competitions?

4 hour sessions with all materials provided. £20 per session. Please pay on the day.

This course will cover the techniques of short fiction, focusing on marketable stories, and on the ‘nuts and bolts’ of submission. Alison Carter publishes hundreds of stories and serials a year in women’s magazines, plus articles about writing in the trade press.
