How to write short stories

Here is a great opportunity for writers to benefit from the guidance of Helen M Hunt, a successful and prolific writer of short stories for women's magazines.

Insight Into The Women’s Magazine Fiction Market – 3 March 2012
This workshop will look at writing for the increasingly tough and sadly shrinking women’s magazine market. So if you’ve been writing for a while and want to find out more about this market, this workshop could be for you.
Lunch and light refreshments are included. The cost of the course is £35 which also includes a critique.
Moving On Short Story Workshop – 31 March 2012
This course will be practically based and will help participants work towards the first draft of a story for their chosen women’s magazine market. They will receive a critique of their story once they have had a chance to finish it after the course.
Lunch and light refreshments are included. The cost of the course is £40 which also includes a critique.

Helen is excellent at short story writing, I'm sure these courses will be well worth attending.

I wish I could go to one of them. Short story is a format that is quite tricky.
