Writing Fiction from Memory –  workshop led by Erinna Mettler

Life experiences can inspire and enhance your story-telling skills.  Erinna Mettler’s workshop will focus on how to utilise your memories and recollections of past episodes to create vivid fiction.

Erinna gave a great workshop on short-story writing in September 2017. This should be another session well worth attending.

Fifteen Minutes – Erinna’s short story collection – is available to borrow from Hatchery Writers’ Library.  It was shortlisted for a Saboteur Award and an International Rubery Book Award.  Erinna is a founder and co-director of The Brighton Prize for short fiction and of the spoken word group Rattle Tales.

Review of Fifteen Minutes.
