Classes and Workshops
taught by Louise Palfreyman
I deliver regular workshops on short fiction, and they are always popular. I work at universities, literature festivals, art galleries, and as a writer-in-residence in arts and education settings.
"I teach people what makes a short story memorable, what makes editors sit up, and what you can do to improve your writing. I can tailor sessions to suit the needs of all ages and backgrounds."
Let’s Make a Zine!
This is a great workshop for kids, teenagers, and adults who love to get creative… attendees will produce a colourful zine to take home at the end of the session after learning about the history of the zine, and some basic skills in journalism and magazine editing. Great for community projects and kids in care. Materials provided.
I draw on my skills as a journalist, writer and editor of non-fiction to help people approach life writing, or memoir. This class is good for community groups, or creative writing groups who want to explore memory, place, and how to put a lifetime of experiences on the page.
If you are a writer or artist seeking an effective solution for your website upgrade, this is the class for you. We can start from scratch or build on an existing website. I teach in WordPress and Squarespace. You won’t be left with impossible coding and no idea how to make improvements. You will be left with a beautiful website! Festival organisers may be interested to know I do drop-in surgeries, offering advice in one-to-one appointments.
