The Fundamentals of Writing Short Stories

Performance information
28th April 2024
Running time: 60 minutes

The basics of writing short stories: definition, ideas, method, structure and craft.

Author and screenwriter Paul Draper

Join Bournemouth-based author and screenwriter Paul Draper for an hour covering the essentials you need to know to be a successful short story writer. The session will cover: the definition and different types of short stories, finding ideas, deciding perspective and point of view, discovering the heart of your story (and why it may not be where you think it is), learning about drafting and segregating editing from creating, structuring and polishing your work, and what to do with your creation once you have a completed story. The session is going to be fun and aimed to provoke conversation!
