About the Event
Join Comma Press to watch Frank Cottrell-Boyce, novelist, screenwriter and short story writer, on the work of Anton Chekhov. This class will be followed by a Twitter Q&A on how Frank was influenced by the work of Chekhov.
The aim of the Morphologies Masterclass livestreams is to engage those who are interested in working with the short story in the work of its masters, and to help to improve their own practice accessibly during the current lockdown.
The series of six masterclasses we will broadcast were originally delivered around the publication of ‘Morphologies’, an anthology of 15 leading contemporary practitioners offering structural appreciations of past masters of the form as well as their own perspectives on what the short story does so well. During this programme, the ‘Morphologies’ eBook will be discounted by half price to just £2.50, so that those who wish to can read each author's essay ahead of their class.
Each masterclass will also be followed by writing prompts, and Frank Cottrell-Boyce will close the programme with a Q&A on how he was influenced by the work of Chekhov.
