I love to perform my short stories, poems and hybrids and give talks about all aspects of creative writing, including using science as inspiration. (I am taking a break from teaching for at least the first half of 2022.) If you’d like to invite me, please drop me an email and we can discuss fees and dates! [email protected]
Sep 18 I will be giving the keynote talk, ‘Liberation Through Constraint’ at Retreat West’s online flash fiction festival. More info here: https://www.retreatwest.co.uk/online-flash-fest/
Nov 16 I will be the guest reader at a course on Fiction Writing taught by Hannah Vincent at the Garsdale Retreat. More info here: https://thegarsdaleretreat.co.uk/courses/fiction-writing-2022/
Georgina N, participant in a Zoom flash fiction masterclass, Nov 2021: “Thank you Tania. It was like letting loose a swarm of humming bees to make honey. Clever facilitation.”
“Two hours of flash heaven this morning with Tania Hershman on her #flashfiction workshop. Excellent #writing exercises (I have 3 new micros at least!) & thoughtful, intelligent tips. ‘Liberation through constraint’ is my new mantra.” Tracy F, 2020
“Didn’t think I had it in me, but here I am at 8am EST, with four new flash story drafts written in the past two hours, thanks to Tania Hershman & her fab writing exercises… Thank you, Tania I’ve been writing, but not freely. This forced me to let go, something I have a very hard time doing with my writing. So grateful to Tania.” Janice L, 2020
“Brilliant flash fiction workshop with @taniahershman this morning. Came away with 4 drafts and now I need a nap! Also lovely to hear Tania echo my own sentiments of the line between poetry and flash being so thin” Sarah S, 2020
