Two Cures for Love - Short Stories - 8 May


‘Two cures for love

1 Don’t see him. Don’t phone or write a letter.

2 The easy way: get to know him better.’

~ Wendy Cope


Short Cuts is a workshop designed to show you how simple it is to plan and write a short story.

You will have a first draft of a short story when you leave the workshop.

You will learn how to:

  • Show rather than “tell” by introducing action and dialogue.
  • Create memorable characters.
  • Create striking images through original description.
  • Keep clear of the ‘muddle in the middle.’
  • Use a simple method of plot construction according to scenes and sequels.

Places are limited, so book now by mailing info@thewrite.co.za

Cost: R2 000, 00 (Ex VAT)

Time: 9a.m. - 3p.m.

Venue: 10 Bompas Road, Dunkeld West, Sandton / The Ambassador, Bantry Bay
