This workshop, led by the fabulous and experienced Tracey Slaughter (author of Deleted Scenes for Lovers, and Devil’s Trumpet) will connect writers to the tap-root of physical place, looking at how crucial it is to have a sensory ‘base of operations’ in the short story form. Discussions and exercises will focus writers on fully inhabiting landscape in their writing, concentrating on the sensing body who travels the story-territory. The goal is to achieve grounded, dynamic writing that takes the reader by the senses, meshing them into the story through an evocative and visceral engagement with place.
You’re also invited to submit any writing done in this workshop for editing and publication in our Magazine-in-Residence, takahē – see here for details.
