Summer Snapshot: Writing Seasonal Stories with Shaun Kennedy View details

During a holiday to Greece, children hunt for artefacts whilst following a certain rumour. From under a hunk of coral, a cuttlefish darts out and flashes a multitude of colours. It hovers there for a moment as if to warn them. Just a foot away there lies a rusted shell; an unexploded WWII bomb. Summer is indeed a great season for stories. In an idyllic situation, the bright skies and soothing sunshine invite exploration and experimentation. Many of us have innumerable tales to tell from holidays abroad and childhood tomfoolery. On the other hand, the traditional traits of summer can be applied to pure fiction. One might imagine an alien planet consisting mainly of wild coastlines contrasting with deceptively serene oceans. This is the kind of thinking that will take place throughout this two-part course that will utilise lecture, discussion, excerpts, and various prompt-guided exercises to get us writing some summer-related short scenes!
