Prose And Satire Writing Workshop By Elnathan John

Prose And Satire Writing Workshop By Elnathan John

If you are interested in writing short prose and satire, there will be a one-day workshop on Friday 14 November, 2014 for twenty selected participants. This is being put together by Elnathan John, a damn fine prose writer who “considers it violence of unimaginable proportions to ask him to write for free.”


Tips and lessons on writing and improving short prose, both fiction and non-fiction, and how to write effective satire.
