How the Short Story Works: TLC Masterclass on 30 March 2013 at Free Word

 TLC Masterclass: How the Short Story Works

An exploration of the defining features of the modern short story

The Literary Consultancy presents a series of three unique, full-day classes to give you an overview of narrative structure in the two most popular literary forms, the short story and novel, and to provide clarity about why and how genre fiction works. Clarity about your chosen form is important for a writer: these classes can make you feel more empowered about the choices you make.

This class will explore the defining features of the modern short story.  We will look at the five basic types of short narratives by examining the work of leading exponents of the craft.  At the end of the day you should have a good understanding of how the short story works and why.

Participants will be provided with a link to stories and extracts in advance of the workshop in order to prepare for this masterclass and cover as much ground as possible. As part of the judging panel for the V.S. Pritchett Memorial Prize, author and tutor Jacob Ross offers a wealth of experience and knowledge about the form.

Jacob was so well prepared. Jacob Ross is a really gifted, and perceptive teacher. It was a privilege to be in his class.’ - Ruby Cowling (TLC November Showcase)

All classes will involve writing exercises during the day. For anyone inspired to write fresh work we will offer a follow up offer of 50% off a manuscript assessment for a short story, or 50 page extract of a novel, if they are submitted within a month of the completion of the last class. 

The classes can either be booked seperately or as a series: see our pricing structure below for more details. All prices include tea and coffee breaks.
