Text reads: "Write As You Are: Tal Frost" and then: "Ever wanted to find out more about writing and self-publishing novels, novellas & short stories? I’m a trans writer who’s self-published five indie gay/queer supernatural fantasy books, and I do every stage single-handedly – from creating and writing them in the first place, to editing, formatting for paperback & digital (very different processes), cover design and worldwide promotion including review copies, newsletters, social media and author parties – so whatever your questions are, I can probably help! Come along to this Writers’ Q&A. Bring your questions and throw them at me!"
Text reads: "Write As You Are: Ember Wyres-Smith" and then "Feghoots, novellas, & drabbles, oh my. A writing workshop for writers of all levels, genres, and those who are simply interested in how stories are told. It will focus on the art of short and micro fiction. We will look at the types of short stories we can write, structure: beginning, middle, and end, and their importance, brevity, and how writing short stories can even help us become better writers to create longer narratives. We shall put each one into practice by writing in the wonderful, challenging form: the drabble. There will also be a chance to share your story."
