East Sussex,

SW | Exploring Story Worlds (workshop) - Friday 29 Sept


This one-day workshop is an opportunity for you to work with award-winning short fiction writer K J Orr. She will guide you through a series of exercises designed to help you become better attuned to those things that really hold charge for you as a writer and capture your attention. You will be encouraged to respond attentively to location and landscape, and to build on these responses as we consider character and dialogue, and explore ways to begin to develop story worlds. The day will include practical activities responding in situ to the Charleston House and setting, as well as plenty of time for individual feedback within the group setting.

K J Orr won the BBC National Short Story Award 2016. Her debut collection of stories, Light Box, was published last year, and was included among the best books of 2016 in the Observer and publisher picks of 2016 in the Guardian. Her stories have appeared in numerous publications including the White Review, the Irish Times and Best British Short Stories. She is a Teaching Fellow in Creative Writing at UEA.

This workshop is aimed at adults with an interest in, though not necessarily any prior experience of, creative writing. Maximum 15 participants.

Supported by The Booker Prize Foundation
