Book now for Facets of Fiction Workshops


There are just a few places left on Mike Smith’s latest Short Fiction course in Curthwaite, and the Long Fiction course is sold out, so book now to avoid disappointment!

Starting on 20 January and running for five fortnightly sessions, the course costs £35.00. Each session runs for two hours, starting at 7.00pm. Appropriate for beginners as well as more experienced writers, the course will explore themes such as beginnings and endings, narrative voice, character, and plot lines, and course members will be given writing exercises to complete in advance of each session.

Contact Mike at [email protected] for more details and to sign up.

Mike Smith’s (aka Brindley Hallam Dennis) stories have been published, broadcast, performed, and given prizes. He lives within sight of Criffel, Skiddaw, and Cross Fell and a sliver of Solway Firth, and teaches Creative Writing at the University of Cumbria. Read his blog here.

    It’s great that these selective courses are continuing. I really enjoyed last years sessions and was encouraged to explore outside my comfort zone. Sadly I can’t do the 1st course but will be in on the Feb/Mar course. Anyone interested in delving deeper into the creative writing process would do well to try and get on Mikes courses. He gives a lot for a very reasonable price.
