大(dà)家(jiā)好(hǎo) Hello everyone
'Mrs Harris and the writers'
Workshop for keen writers.
Jan Carson is a writer based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Her first novel, Malcom Orange Disappears in 2014 was followed by a short story collection Children's Children in 2016. Jan discussed her latest publication, anthology of flash fiction, Postcard Stories - a project in which she set herself a challenge to write a short story every day for 365 days straight, scribble them down on postcards and and mail them to friends, family and acquaintances all around the world. Postcard stories will be available in the library soon.
Last year Jan won the Harper's Bazaar UK short story competition, and her radio drama monologue UnRavelling, read by Liam Neeson, was broadcast on the BBC in June 2017. She came to Aotearoa for LitCrawl 2017 .
Jan gave a talk about being a writer and ran a Postcard short story writing workshop for 32 keen writers. See some of their writing here. I will be adding to this page!
