“Inside Short Stories”
Jan Edwards and Peter Coleborn are both writers and editors. Between them they run Alchemy Press, a small independent publisher well respected in the fantasy/horror field, especially for its original anthologies. As a result, they know a lot about short stories.
This month, Jan and Peter will be leading a workshop along the lines of a general ‘writing short fiction’. They will also give guidance about market research and manuscript presentation and are willing to answer your questions around these topics.
They will also be making you work hard so:-
Please bring pen and paper.
