Short fiction Masterclass

Event Type: Creative Writing Workshop

A short story is something that you can hold in your mind. You can really analyse how the entire thing works, like a machine’ Chuck Palahniuk.

Bea Davenport is the writing name of former BBC journalist Barbara Henderson. Bea is a four-times published author for adults and children. Her two crime novels, In Too Deep (2013) and This Little Piggy (2014), are published by Legend Press. Her debut children’s novel, The Serpent House, was written as part of a Creative Writing PhD and published in 2014 by Curious Fox. Her latest children’s book, My Cousin Faustina (2015), was written as an interactive e-book for reluctant readers and is now in paperback with ReadZone Books. She has won several short story prizes.

In this practical workshop, author Bea Davenport will guide you through plotting, structure and characterisation to create a short story that readers will remember.
