The long and the short of it: handling narrative time

with Jacqueline Yallop

Date: Sunday 9th June 2024

Venue: The Den at The Dragon Hotel

Time: 10.30-11.30pm

Tickets: £10.00

How do we organise time in our stories? How do we balance short scenes that take place in a few minutes with the long sweep of months or years? What does time mean to our characters and how does it affect plot?

Author and creative writing tutor, Jacqueline Yallop will lead a session where you’ll look at examples and work on exercises to explore the mysteries of time so that you can work more confidently with multiple timeframes in your writing. No experience needed  – but bring any and all ideas you might have.

Spaces are limited (20 people maximum), so grab your notebook or laptop and book your tickets now.
