Online Feedback: Short Stories
10 February to 26 June 2020, online
Full Price: $500
Conc Member: $300
In this online short story feedback course, author Eleanor Limprecht will provide feedback on your short fiction in an online classroom environment, enabling you to hone your skills over five months. You’ll also give and receive peer feedback, and be able to consider the tutor’s feedback across all submissions. The tutor’s feedback will vary depending on each short story but may focus on structure, characterisation, language, plot and other helpful tips for fine-tuning, including recommendations for short stories to read.
Once a month, you’ll submit up to 1500 words of fiction. Your tutor will provide tailored feedback, giving you time to incorporate suggestions and advice into the next month’s submission. Each month, you can either submit new or previously submitted writing.
You’ll also have the opportunity to read and comment on other participants’ writing. This process of giving and receiving feedback from fellow writers is an ideal way to determine what works, what resonates, what falls flat – and how to improve.
This online course takes place on a website specifically designed for writers, making it simple and easy to share your writing, give and receive feedback, and interact with fellow writers.
If you’re ready to challenge yourself and develop your skills through constructive critique, this is the course for you. Please note, while you are welcome to generate new material for submission during this time, no prompts or themes will be provided.
Internet access and confidence using basic computer software are essential for this course. Please read our FAQ before enrolling.
Please note: This course starts on 10 February with enrolment into our online classroom. Submissions (up to 1500 words of fiction) are due on the following dates:
After each submission date, you’ll have 11 days to complete peer feedback. At the end of each feedback period, you’ll receive your tutor feedback.
