Masterclass in short story writing from Tom Conaghan
Editor of Reverse Engineering, Scratch Books


WRITING CIRCLE hosted by Revival of the Arts – 6th Form Students
With Guest speaker Tom Conaghan who will talk about publication REVERSE ENGINEERING 2 as well as running a masterclass in short story writing

Join the editor of Scratch Books, Tom Conaghan, as he talks us through the methods and processes of the most brilliant short story writers. We will learn from the ideas of the Reverse Engineering series and conversations with Sarah Hall, Tessa Hadley, George Saunders, Yiyun Li, Jon McGregor and many others, exploring how different writers follow their inspiration to inform their writing. We will then look into the different methods writers use to shape the raw material of a first draft, to hone the work to form the best version of itself, so that it “responds acutely to itself.

The session will lead new and emerging writers through some useful craft ideas for great short stories – giving you new ways to think about your writing as well as a few things to avoid! Please bring something to write with…

£8.99 to include book AND Masterclass. (rrp of book £9.99)

The Poet & The Echo is  a collaboration with BBC Radio 4  – a collection of short stories written in response to ten poems.

It includes Jenni Fagan taking inspiration from Anne Finch, Jessie Greengrass from Christopher Smart, Leila Aboulela from Rumi, David Almond from Robert Louis Stevenson and 6 other extraordinarily touching and powerful works.  The rich echoes between story and poem create diverse and intriguing correspondences.
