You will go from initial idea, through writing and editing to finished story – all in a single day! Bring paper and pens, laptop or tablet... and get ready to write.

For writers of all levels.

This workshop will be led by Linda McVeigh – a writer with considerable success in competitions, including two-times winner of the Charleston Small Wonder Short Story Festival slam (in 2007 and again in 2011), first prize in the Rainy Cities Short Stories prize in 2010, first prize in the 2011 Asham Award, judged by Sarah Waters and first place in the inaugural Brighton Prize (2014). Her long short story, 'Back Seat', was long-listed for the 2016 Galley Beggar Press prize.  Her story ‘All Over the Place’ was published in ‘Something Was There’ (Virago, 2011).
