What’s the Story?

Michael Yates is an established writer whose latest collection of fiction, 20 Stories High, is published this spring. The 20 stories are a mixed bag of the funny, sad and scary, with a cast list of heroes, villains… and ghosts! 20 Stories High will be launched at Henry Boons at 7pm on Thursday 22 February.

Michael will be working with us at Wakefield Library in March and April on a short story writing course ‘What’s the Story’ Over four sessions he will teach you how to write your own short story,  make your plots exciting and your characters come alive.

Monday 12 March, 2-4pm: What is a short story? How to build a plot. How to create character. Brainstorm a plot for your story. Write an exciting intro.

Monday 19 March, 2-4pm: Develop your plot. Find a setting for your story. How to win the reader’s attention. How to keep the reader’s attention.

Then a three-week break to write your story! You will be able to keep in touch with tutor Michael to ask his advice by e-mail!
