With KR Moorhead
If you’ve written a novel, short stories, life-writing or are in the process, than this course is for you.
It is also suitable for people who are writing regularly and would benefit from a work-shopping environment.
Writing can be an isolated activity; we often ‘write in the dark’ and this course offers the opportunity to discuss work with others who understand this process, and how beneficial feedback is to the redrafting process.
Each week, two to three writers submit up to 1500 words of prose or short fiction. Across two hours, the group will discuss the presented work, and offer critically constructive feedback.
The remaining time will be taken up with conversations on publishing, prize culture and where submission windows might be open for journals etc. Though there is no pressure to publish, it will offer students an insight into the next steps once a manuscript is ready.
Students will be expected to submit work in advance to allow the tutor and peers to read in advance.
