Unfortunately this workshop is now full.
Susan Midalia has published three collections of short stories, all of them shortlisted for major literary awards. This workshop will equip both emerging and more experienced writers with an understanding of how to write memorable short stories: ones that draw the reader in, enchant them or disturb them, make them laugh or cry. All you need to bring is equipment for writing, an open mind and a willingness to learn. And having fun is mandatory!
Susan aims to improve people’s understanding of how to deploy narrative conventions and language to achieve the effects they desire. As someone with over thirty years of teaching experience, at both secondary and tertiary level, Susan is able to communicate effectively with both emerging and more experienced writers, and with a range of age groups from schoolchildren to adults.
