Editing Your Short Stories (or Fiction) with Shane McCauley

Sunday 9th September 2018 1:30pm-4:30pm

Join a group of fellow fiction writers in the beautiful setting of the Peter Cowan Writers’ Centre as we look at ways of lifting our short stories to another level by considering examples of great and not so great literature. Examples will be critiqued and participants are encouraged to bring samples of their work for assessment within the frame of a 3-hour workshop. We will also consider relevant comments by respected editors and literary judges on what constitutes publishable or award-winning fiction. The aim is to learn how to become more successful writers, and to have fun while doing so!
