Every writer leaves a little bit of themselves in their stories no matter what the story is about, or how abstract it is. As writers, we use our reactions in a particular situation to judge/decide how a character we are creating would react if we placed them in that same situation. In this workshop we learn how to write about the ‘small’ things in life in a critical and reflective way, using the short story as a form of social commentary.
