Comma Press Short Story Course with Sue Wilsea                

Join Comma Press, leading independent publisher of short fiction, on their 6 month short story writing course.

 This course is about the short story …

Over the course of 6 workshops, you’ll get a handle on the predominant narrative structures used by short story writers, and implement them in your own work. Completing set writing tasks between workshops, and receiving structured, peer-driven feedback, you’ll develop 3 short stories to completion, with tailored advice on how to shape the story, and how to improve the characterisation, dialogue, and narrative voice. Comma Press, one of the UK’s leading publisher of short fiction, is always looking for new voices in short fiction and it’s hoped that this course will unearth and develop new voices to lead the form.
