The art of short story writing

Find the marvellous in the mundane with writer Tessa Hadley as she talks with literary journalist Alex Clark about the art of writing short stories. Alex is also joined by the authors nominated for the V S Pritchett Prize for short stories and invites feedback from judges Aamer Hussein, Chibundu Onuzo and Michèle Roberts, before the winner is announced.

Tessa Hadley is, with each publication, becoming one of the UK’s most critically acclaimed writers. She is the author of six novels and three short-story collections, the latest of which, Bad Dreams and Other Stories (‘exquisite and haunting’, The Guardian), was published earlier this year.

In partnership with The Royal Society of Literature. The RSL is grateful to Jennie Bland for sponsoring the V S Pritchett Memorial Prize, to Prospect for publishing the winning entry and to ALCS for supporting the event.
