I am very excited to announce I will be teaching a flash fiction workshop in the Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park on the 3rd of June. This is one of my favourite places to walk, think and take photographs and is much-loved by locals for its beautiful trees and wandering paths.
Sat 3 Jun 2023 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM BST
Come to the Cemetery Park and have a go at writing flash fiction as you explore your local burial ground for part of National Cemeteries Week!
This three-hour workshop will take inspiration from the history of some of the gravestones in the Cemetery Park, which we will learn about from Claire Slack, the Park’s Heritage Officer. Once we have had a chance to explore the park, learn some local history, and enjoy a short break, we will use the material we have gathered to write some flash fiction (‘short short’ stories) of our own.
You can record your flash fiction at the end of the workshop for a special edition of my literary podcast, www.storyradio.org. No previous writing experience is required – just bring a notebook and pen! Suitable for adults and children aged 12 and older but all under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
