Miracle in a Matchbox: the art of short story writing

The short story is a wondrous and elastic form where every word must contribute to the final effect. As short story supremo Raymond Carver once said, “Get in, get out. Don’t linger. Go on.” Join us at our final salon before the summer break for some end-of-term excitement discussing the joys and mysteries of the form with short story whizz and creative writing teacher Adam Marek. Adam is the award-winning author of two collections whose stories have been broadcast on BBC Radio 4 and appeared in many magazines and anthologies. You should leave tonight’s salon fizzing with ideas to transform your words into matchbox-sized miracles.
