events & workshops

Workshop participants: “You were amazing. Everyone was buzzing afterwards and there was a sense of permission to play that was talked about all day”

I love to perform my short stories, poems and hybrids and give talks about all aspects of creative writing, including using science as inspiration, and I am an experienced teacher and facilitator of writing workshops on a wide variety of topics. If you’d like to invite me, contact me and we can discuss fees, dates etc…

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

“I haven’t written anything new in months and this was exactly the kickstart I needed!!!” Marina S, 2020
