Event description

Description

At this hands-on workshop, delivered by local author Alanah Andrews, you'll look at the basic elements of short fiction.

Look at flash fiction pieces, the market for short fiction, how to write to a prompt, planning and writing the first draft, strong beginnings, a satisfying ending, and strong dialogue as well as how to be a 'good' beta reader.
