The Writers’ HQ Write A Short Story Festival 2024
Fri 1 Mar 2024 to Fri 5 Apr 2024
Join Sarah, Team WHQ and a specially curated gang of super awesome, award-winning short story writers for a month of short story workshops, masterclasses and write-a-longs designed to get you writing or to elevate your craft from good to GREAT.

Throughout March 2024, the Writers’ HQ Write A Short Story Festival will give you the opportunity to explore everything you need to know about the short form, from starting, middling and ending. We’ll go deep into the craft of short story writing and finish the month by finding out how to submit your work to lit mags and publishers.

You can start at the beginning and write a story alongside other festival writers, or you can drop in and out depending on where you are with your writing.

Plus, through regular write-a-longs we’ll help you stay on track and build a writing practice that fits into your life and goals.

With over a decade of experience supporting writers through their challenges and guiding them through their arghs and blarghs, this festival is sure to get your words moving.

Festival curator and director of Writers' HQ Sarah Lewis says, "People are always telling me how much easier it is to write with other people so I thought it would be fun to create a series of events where we all write a short story alongside each other. The result is the Writers’ HQ Write A Short Story Festival and it’s going to be super fun and you should definitely join us for it.”

Writers' HQ is dedicated to supporting writers on a low income and bursary places are available.
