Developing Your Brand Through Short Stories – with Chikọdịlị Emelụmadụ

Chikodili explores the power and potential of the short story through this masterclass and how you can utilise it to develop your ‘brand’. Using a range of techniques and devises, she will draw on her own experiences to unpick how to build an audience, experiment with story, form and expression, along side other practical areas such as how to get paid, all via the thoroughly enjoyable medium of short stories.

About First Tuesday Writers

First Tuesday Writers is here to keep your writing fresh. Taking place on the first Tuesday of every month, each 90 minute session offers a deep dive into a writer’s creative world – designed to challenge and energise you, and lead you to new creative discoveries.

Every writer and every form of writing has something unique that we can learn and put to use in our own work. These workshops are all opportunities to learn from radically diverse writers – including poets, bloggers, crime writers and much more. Drop in for one or two events or sign up to them all: either way, you’ll leave buzzing, and ready to do your best and most innovative work.

Low cost places available

We believe the price of our courses should never be a barrier to your learning. If you are unable to pay for a place on this event, contact us to apply for a bursary place.
