Short Story Writing Workshop with Jo Riccioni

Sun 20 May 2018
10am - 4pm
We all know when we’ve read a great short story. It lingers with us long after we’ve finished reading. But how do you write one? What are the elements that make up a compelling piece of short fiction, preferably one that will make competitions judges sit up and take notice?

In this one-day workshop, award-winning short story writer, Jo Riccioni, will use real examples to break down the ingredients of the best short stories, offering you the practical tools to create or improve your own short fiction of 2000 words or less. We will look at the structure of short stories, their difference from novels, narrative voice and point of view, characterisation, conflict and tension, and how to master that killer ending. We’ll also consider how to successfully weave a specific setting or theme into the narrative, helping writers who wish to enter the Pittwater Short Story Award in 2018, which requires a local setting and the theme “blue moon”.
