Word Factory #22 & Masterclass – 26th April, London

A warm welcome awaits you at Word Factory on the 26th April, a day packed with short story wonder at Waterstones Piccadilly:

In the Beginning – Masterclass with Nicholas Royle – 1.30-4.30pm

A rare chance to work with this renowned short story writer and editor in an intensive three-hour masterclass. He will talk about how he chooses the Best British short stories and also focus on beginnings: how to ensure your reader is gripped from the very first paragraph and your own inspiration is stimulated and kept on track. You will leave with new beginnings of your own – in your work and thinking.

Cost: £60 per person with free entrance to the evening reading included.

Short Story Club – 5-6pm

This month: Steven Millhauser -In the Reign of King Harad IV

Join us as we read a classic short tale – this month from a novelist and short story writer whose work inspired the film, The Illusionist and whose distinctive, fantastical voice has been compared to Borges. We will discuss themes, language and impact in the hour before the salon.

Simply email Sophie Haydock for more details and a copy of the story: sophie@thewordfactory.tv
