Recommend this event

Create a short story using magical realist techniques.

Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s One Hundred Years of Solitude, which examines Colombia's recent history, is recognised as masterpiece of the genre. You will visit the section of the exhibition that explores pre-Hispanic mythology to be inspired by societies for whom mythical figures played an active role in their reality.

Award-winning novelist and short story writer Leone Ross will then help you create a short piece of prose in the magical realist genre.

In association with Spread the Word.
