‘The Art of the Short Story’ with Vanessa Gebbie

At last you can sign up for the forthcoming creative writing workshop with Vanessa Gebbie to be held in Venice, April 2017. Here is an overview of the course.

Classic writers such as Byron, Browning, Hemmingway, Thomas Mann. Contemporary writers too – Salley Vickers, Sarah Dunant, Michael Dibdin, Donna Leon and many many more – Venice has always intrigued writers, gifting them stories, inspiration, settings, characters…

Join their ranks in April 2017 for five busy half-day workshops spread over five days, led by award-winning fiction writer and poet, Vanessa Gebbie, whose text book is recommended reading on creative writing courses in the UK and beyond.

We will be based on the lovely Giudecca, a three-minute ferry ride from the main sites of Venice. The course will be hosted in ‘Spazio Bocciofila’, a small, contemporary arts’ centre offering a delightful indoor space, plus the added attraction of a garden where we will be able to eat our ‘al fresco’ lunches on fine days.
