Creative Writing Class: Short Stories

How to write a short story



6 hours Class size 1 to 12     label $170 - $199 ($199 per guest when you book for 1 guest, $180 for 2 guests, $170 for 3+ guests)


Learn how to craft short true stories at this creative writing workshop in Sydney. At the end of the one-day writing course, you will know how to start writing short creative nonfiction based on your own life.

This class is great for beginners, as your instructor will teach you valuable skills to craft your memories into a short and true story. This fun class will allow you to embrace moments from your life and consider themes such as your family, your relationship or greatest passions.

The writing course will begin with looking at short creative nonfiction by significant authors including Tim Winton, Helen Garner and David Sedaris, and discussing the range of themes that emerge from their works. You will then move into brainstorming your own work and exploring techniques and styles that characterise engaging works of creative nonfiction.

After attending the writing course you will have:

·       Gained greater knowledge of creative nonfiction works

·       Learned how to look at everyday life as an opportunity for stories

·       An understanding of the techniques and styles that make engaging writing

·       Learned how to start writing your own creative nonfiction based on your own life

Our teacher Elizabeth was very welcoming, relaxed and encouraging. Her workshop was well structured, well paced and presented. Over the day Elizabeth gave us good information, excellent examples of relevant writing, facilitated discussion and guided us through brainstorming topics for our own writing, choosing our topic and beginning and finally writing a short piece. It was very engaging and enjoyable and Elizabeth made it very interactive and so much easier to write than I ever expected. I highly recommend the workshop.
