Getting Started – Generating Short Story Ideas: A practical writing workshop with Allen Ashley. Allen is an experienced tutor and runs several regular groups including Clockhouse London Writers. In this workshop, Allen will show you a range of ways to get started on short stories and how to improve your writing to make it more publishable. Allen’s workshops are always task-based and purposeful, so expect to be fully occupied throughout. Bring a pen, paper, something to lean on plus your imagination. You will go away fired with ideas and inspiration.
