Early Days Hybrid Novella Workshop (an exploration of characters and ideas)

Start making use of recurring characters. This workshop will be a place where you can experiment with writing linked stories using characters who keep turning up in your fiction! Maybe it’s a family dog. Or a grandparent. But somehow, you keep writing about them. Before you embark on the big task of writing a flash novella, you will benefit mightily by exploration and experimentation.  Highly work-generative, non-criical, non-academic.

As always, this workshop will take place in a private Facebook group dedicated to this workshop. If interested e-mail me.
