Who it's for

Suitable for beginning writers and those with a little experience, the Introduction to Writing Fiction is a great place to start for people who have always fancied writing but have never had the confidence to start. It’s similarly a good refresher for those who may have tried their hand before but have lost the habit or would like a jump-start form a professional tutor and experienced writer.

How you'll learn

Using a mixture of readings, practical exercises and discussion, participants in this writing workshop learn all about the basics of writing compelling and publishable fiction. The aim is to have a complete short story to show by the end the course.

She received her MFA in Fiction from Boston University, where she went on to teach creative writing workshops, including Introduction to Creative Writing and Writing Fiction. She has published fiction and non-fiction in publications across the US and UK, including Litro, The Atlantic, Nat Brut., and Unthank’s own Unthology.  Her teaching philosophy favours the practical and the personal. Learning by writing, sharing pieces of truth, and being brave (we’re in it together).
