Is your job boring? Is your job exciting? Do you love your colleagues? Do you hate them? Have you ever thought your workplace would make a good setting for a novel or short story? Come to this 2.5 hour workshop with novelist and short story writer, Rowena Macdonald. She will show you how to use your workplace (either past or present) as inspiration for fiction.

 

Workshop places limited to 25: £10. For another £20, Rowena will give a written editorial commentary of the first chapter of your unpublished novel, or a short story you have previously written. This offer is limited to six people, and to ten pages of prose, double spaced and in 12 point font. The ten pages would need to be emailed to Rowena by Sunday 19 January 2019.

Her debut collection of short stories, SMOKED MEAT, was shortlisted for the 2012 Edge Hill Prize. She currently works at the House of Commons (where THE THREAT LEVEL REMAINS SEVERE is set) and also teaches creative writing at the Universities of Westminster and Hertfordshire.
