Is it important for a writer to choose one literary genre and stick with it?
Or can a grasp of all be acquired?
Not sure what type of creative writing best suits you?
Here’s your opportunity to discover and/or find your niche(s) with an introduction to taster sessions, covering each of the various writing forms over the coming weeks, with with multifarious scribbler H.B. O’Neill.
What is the secret of a good short story?
What elements are needed to win prizes and get your work noticed?
