Comma Press: Sculpting a short story collection with Gaynor Jones
Wed 10 Jan 2024 to Wed 13 Mar 2024
This is a four session, in-person short story course running from January to March 2024. Over the course of the four sessions, we will discuss work you have already written, with a focus on how to edit and improve your words in a way that retains your artistic integrity and individual voice.

We will consider how your short stories can become a collection and work together to identify any gaps or areas for consideration. Alongside this writing focus, you will also be given advice and insight into submitting your short stories to agents and publishers, as well as a final session with peer and tutor feedback.

Gaynor Jones is a long-time short story lover and award-winning writer whose own work has won or placed in numerous competitions including the Mairtín Crawford Short Story Award, Bath Flash Fiction and the Bridport Prize. Her short fiction has been published widely in print and online including at Aesthetica, Barrelhouse and The Forge, and she was longlisted for the 2022 BBC National Short Story Award. 

The ticket includes four sessions, detailed feedback, and publication in a short story e-book anthology.
