Anyone can write stories, but few can write stories that keep us wanting more. This hands-on workshop with Roanna Gonsalves will help you craft an engaging short story or turn an existing story into an interesting and illuminating work. Tread the terrain of the short story, be inspired by the tools of writers from different storytelling cultures across the world and play with language, character and structure to ‘rewild’ your short story. Come prepared to do lots of writing.

On receipt of booking, we will ask you to confirm any special requirements, including access needs. While not all rooms in Science House are fully accessible, we are committed to ensuring that all participants can attend all workshops.

With thanks to NYU Sydney.
