Forgotten Women Workshop: Saturday, 6 April 2019

There are still a few tickets left for tomorrow’s workshop collaboration between Word Factory, Tara Arts and FlashBack Fiction.

Join us from 10am to 5pm on Saturday, 6 April 2019 at Tara Studio (356 Garratt Lane, Earlsfield, London SW18 4ES) for a fun, interactive workshop, exploring the lost voices of women from history.

Tickets can be purchased for £50 (£45 for Word Factory members) through Tara Arts website:

Forgotten Women Workshop – Flashback Fiction Showcase

In this workshop, you will learn how to write and perform convincing historical flash fiction, using objects and a range of prompts to inspire new stories. Working in the intimate space at Tara Theatre, you will be shown how to shape and edit your work, with time allocated to share and give feedback on works in progress.

Workshop attendees will have a further opportunity to perform their finished pieces on Sat 11 May, alongside writer and broadcaster Natalie Haynes at Tara Theatre.

The workshop is suitable for writers of all levels, from the beginner to the more experienced flash fiction writer. While no prior knowledge of historical women is required, if attendees have a particular woman from their family history whose voice they wish to capture, they are welcome to bring materials. We would love to hear a diverse range of women’s stories.

The workshop will be led by FlashBack’s own Emily Devane with help from other FlashBack editors, poet Cathy Galvin, and actor/writer Sharon Eckman who will be offering additional performance training.
