Short Stories with Tania Hershman

September 17, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Short story writer,  poet and teacher, Tania Hershman will be reading and talking about writing short stories. Her latest book is Writing Short Stories: A Writers and Artists Companion (Bloomsbury 2014) which she co-wrote and edited with Courttia Newland.

Tania’s achievements grown year on year. Publications include short story collections: The White Road and Other Stories (Salt 2008), and a collection of very short fiction: My Mother was an Upright Piano (Tangent Press 2012).  She curates a fabulous website about UK & Ireland short story activity ShortStops (you’d be mad not to join her mailing list!), and her list of awards and prizes is enough to make you dizzy.

She’s the Royal Literary Fund Writing Fellow in the faculties of science at Bristol University, and is studying for a PhD in Creative Writing at Bath Spa University, and teaches on Arvon courses.

Tania won 2nd prize in the 2015 Fool for Poetry chapbook competition and her debut poetry chapbook, Nothing Here is Wild, Everything Is Open, will be published in Feb 2016 by Southword Editions.

Join Novel Nights for another unmissable event.

We will also be featuring short stories from writers hand-picked by Tania

See you there.
