Description

Flash Fiction: From Portfolio to Pitching | Learn How To Improve Your Story And Portfolio To Pitch For Publication

What goes on behind the scenes before writers pitch their stories? What ideas inspire them as writers and how do they decide what goes into their portfolio? Flash Fiction: From Portfolio to Pitching is a 3-day writing bootcamp designed for aspiring writers to better their understanding of story development and revision, pitch presentation as well as portfolio structuring. Participants will finish this writing bootcamp by completing a 400-word flash fiction piece as well as a chance to polish your work-in-progress story portfolio to prepare you for future story pitching presentations.

Launching in 2020: Participants who submit their flash fiction stories at the end of the bootcamp will stand a chance to have their works included in an e-journal, which will be launched next year!

  • 24 June 2019, 10am to 5.30pm

  • 25 June 2019, 10am to 5.30pm
