Using the artwork in The First Cut exhibition at Lakeside as inspiration for a variety of creative writing exercises, this course will look at the art of writing short fiction. Workshop activities on elements of flash fiction and short-story writing will feed into participants’ discussions about their own and others’ fictional writing. Particular emphasis will be placed on the importance of cutting and editing your writing; leaving gaps for the reader to fill and working towards a finished piece.
