Room 1: Carriageworks Theatre
Nature can play many parts in fiction: it can be backdrop, subtext, symbol or the story itself. We’ll explore how birds, animals, plants and wild landscapes can be woven into short fiction, and how writers of all kinds can tap into the drama, darkness and beauty of the natural world.
Richard Smyth’s award-winning short stories have appeared in The Stinging Fly, Structo, Firewords, The Fiction Desk, Riptide, Foxhole, Haverthorn and anthologies from Arachne Press, Ink Lines and Spilling Ink. His first novel, Wild Ink, was published by Dead Ink Books in 2014. He writes about nature and books for the Guardian, the TLS, New Statesman, Literary Review and BBC Wildlife.
