The Short Story: New Possibilities with Vanessa Onwuemezi

The Short Story: New Possibilities with Vanessa Onwuemezi
The Emma Press

Mastering the short story form requires a writer to look closely at their prose, considering each chosen word as a vital component of the whole. In this masterclass we will find new potential in our writing by taking a close look at the technical elements of the craft, such as point of view, character and managing time in prose. By using short writing exercises designed to take us out of our comfort zone we will explore the new possibilities of the short story form
