The workshop is an opportunity to explore the creation and craft of short stories. The group will explore beginnings, middles, and ends (not necessarily in that order), the change or surprise within, characters worth remembering and the pitfalls of stereotype and cliché. These aspects of craft will be used to stretch our thinking about the creation of a short story and how we can make it the best it can be. Space will be available to ask the writer questions about the creative process of writing short stories.

Jane Archer is a writer based in Fife. She has won awards for short stories from Orange & Harper’s Bazaar, Mslexia and Scottish Writers’ Centre. Her stories can be found in New Writing Scotland anthologies and Gutter Magazine. They have been read at AyeWrite Festival and Wigtown Book Festival. She likes to write ‘less heard’ stories about people on the margins of society and, since her move away from the city, how rural landscapes and animal-myths affect lives. She also writes non-fiction and you can read a sample of her work on the Commonwealth Writers website. Jane is currently writing a novel on the lives of women who have had lobotomies.
