Award-winning novelist shares his story-telling tips

College students at the short-story writing workshop, London

On Thursday 19th April, eight students from the College’s Creative Writing Club attended a short-story writing workshop in London led by novelist and former Sunday Times young writer of the year Ross Raisin.

After discussing the merits and challenges of the short-story form, Raisin presented the group with examples of well-constructed short stories and tasked them with coming up with their own.  

The students fully engaged with the workshop, asking interesting questions to Raisin and bravely volunteering to read out their work to the group.  

English teacher William Rowley, who accompanied the students on the trip, commented, “The session was a real source of inspiration and students left it excited to continue working on the pieces they had begun.”
