Short story writing workshop with Divya Ghelani

October 16 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


The Northern Short Story Festival and Comma Press are delighted to present a day of online events, showcasing and celebrating the short story form, featuring emerging and acclaimed British writers alongside international authors.

All the events will take place on Saturday 16th October, and will be hosted on Zoom.

SOLD OUT! Join us for this two-hour short story and flash fiction writing workshop with acclaimed author Divya Ghelani.

This is the perfect generative workshop for those who wish to break out of their usual writing routine in order to risk, experiment, and explore. Participants will be offered a range of stimulus-based writing exercises to help them conjure new settings, characters, and voices. Expect to leave with one finished short work and ideas for many more.

Divya Ghelani is a writer who holds an MA in Creative Writing from the University of East Anglia and an MPhil in Literary Studies from the University of Hong Kong. She has published short stories in BareLit, BBC Radio 4, Litro, and more. Her novel in progress has been longlisted and shortlisted for four literary awards. Divya lives between the UK and Berlin where she leads a BIPOC Reading Series for The Reader Berlin and co-hosts a short story club for the UK’s leading literary salon, the Word Factory. She is a contributor to Comma Press’s latest anthology, The Cuckoo Cage ed. Ra Page. Divya is represented by The Good Literary Agency.
