Detachment and intimacy: taking your short forms to the next level.
This masterclass will discuss the language and mood of sophisticated small fictions. You will examine voice, tone and layering of themes, using well-known authors’ works as a launching pad. You’ll see how subtle shifts can change the way you consider the small form – and apply this to your own writing. You’ll also explore the connection between writer and reader, and the balance between detachment and intimacy. Please bring a piece of flash fiction or prose poetry to share.
