Leading independent publisher Tindal Street Press is running summer writing masterclasses - and WM readers have a chance to win a place
There will be two weekend masterclasses, each led by publishing director Alan Mahar. Taking on the Novel (3-4 August) will include a session with Catherine O'Flynn, author of Costa-winning novel What Was Lost. Short Story (10-11 August) includes a session with Gaynor Arnold, Booker-listed for Girl in a Blue Dress.
Each course costs £150 and runs from 2-6pm on Friday and 10-5pm on Saturday at The Custard Factory in Birmingham.
Writing Magazine readers can enter our exclusive competition to win a place on the Short Story course, plus £50 towards travel and expenses. To enter, go here and upload an opening sentence or paragraph (no more than 50 words) to a compelling short story, using the word 'class' as your inspiration. The closing date is 20 July - so you've got just over a week to get your entry in.
Tindal Street will be running an intensive ten-week fiction-writing masterclass in the autumn. For more information on this, and the summer classes, visit: www.tindalstreet.co.uk
