Each day, between Monday 30 March to Friday 3 April Arvon will email you a handy writing prompt or exercise from short story guru Tania Hershman. By the end of the week you could have a draft of a brand-new short story, all ready to be polished and prodded as you see fit.
Whether you’re new to short fiction or an expert, Tania’s tips will help you create a story – whether it’s your first or your fiftieth.
They’ll also be running a competition in conjunction with the challenge for the best 500-word short story openers. First prize will win detailed written feedback on your short story from Tania and one runner-up will win three months’ free Friends membership.
