Short or Long? Form in Fiction

  • The Teahouse Theatre cafe 139 Vauxhall Walk London, England, SE11 5HL United Kingdom (map)

Guest writer: Tessa Hadley

Do you ever start writing a short story and find it wants to become a novel? Have you ever worried that your brilliant new idea isn’t big enough to sustain a novel? Join us as we explore the possibilities of form in fiction. Our guest author, Tessa Hadley, is a Professor of Creative Writing at Bath Spa University, and an award winning novelist and short story writer. She publishes short stories regularly in The New Yorker, reviews for The Guardian and the London Review of Books. This salon should appeal to writers who want to expand their thinking about form and length, and how to work out what a new project needs to be.
