Luton Literature Book Festival: A taste of creative writing with Dr Timothy Jarvis
1:00pm - 2:00pm
Luton Literature presents: A taste of creative writing with Dr Timothy Jarvis
Dr Timothy Jarvis, Senior Lecturer in Creative Writing at The University of Bedfordshire will deliver a workshop for aspiring writers in the style of Flash Fiction; defined as a very short story.
While there is no set word count that separates flash fiction from more traditional short stories, flash fiction stories can be as short as a few words up to 250 in the case of this workshop, while short stories typically run for several pages.
You’ll be guided through the exciting process of letting your imagination run free and putting words to paper, whilst gaining invaluable hints and tips on what makes great writing. You’ll also be given an idea of options there are - both as a career or just for pure enjoyment – for using literature as your own creative outlet.
This is an in-person event at the Hat Factory.
1-2pm in the Hat Factory Floor. Ages 16+
You can book tickets to take part in A taste of creative writing through the Culture Trust website.

The Hat Factory
The Hat Factory is Luton's leading arts and entertainment venue featuring live music, club nights, theatre, dance, films, children's activities, workshops, classes and gallery exhibitions.
It's a centre of artistic excellence set within a vibrant urban environment. It offers the young and the young at heart the chance to engage with the arts, to be inspired by the UK’s leading arts practitioners, and to develop artistic skills and confidence.
The Hat Factory is a combined arts venue in the centre of Luton. It opened in 2003 and since then has been the area’s main provider of contemporary theatre, dance and music. We work with both emerging and proven producers and artists, through programming, engagement programmes and our Associate Artist scheme. Their music programming is vibrant, offering an eclectic portfolio of high quality artists from the worlds of jazz, blues, folk, world music, indie and hip hop. Complementing their own programming, they welcome local/regional promoters to the venue, broadening their music offer and at the same time supporting young promoters and their businesses. They programme contemporary theatre and dance with a focus on fresh, new and relevant stories from both established and emerging touring companies who are making high quality work in the UK. They’ve programmed companies like Earthfall, Chickenshed, New International Encounter (NIE), Trestle, Menagerie, Eastern Angles, Atma, State of Emergency, 30 Bird, Tavaziva, Analogue and Jean Abreu Dance to name but a few.
The Hat Factory has flexible spaces of various sizes to suit every need. See Venue Hire for more information.
