Creative Writing Workshops
Coming soon 

Do you enjoy writing stories? Or maybe you’ve got a story inside you but haven’t had the chance to get it out? And what about sending your work to magazines that publish fiction and pay for it? Or entering competitions?

This course will cover the techniques of writing short fiction, focusing on marketable stories, and on the 'nuts and bolts' of submission.

From the start, we will do lots of work on growing your plot and finding inspiration for an enthralling tale. We’ll aim for a joint critique of the stories later in the course. And you will submit a story - if you feel it’s ready.

Alison Carter publishes hundreds of stories and serials a year in women’s magazines, plus articles about writing in the trade press. She teaches the craft regularly at The Hawth, at the offices of ‘The People’s Friend’ in Fleet Street, and in courses in Haywards Heath and elsewhere.
