Flash Fiction writing Exercise: Coleridge Cottage

The year is 1797 and Samuel Taylor Coleridge is immersed in writing his epic poem, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. His creative life is flourishing, with a little help from his new friends William and Dorothy Wordsworth and, while William and Samuel are on the road to creating a new Romantic Age in English writing, Coleridge’s marriage to Sarah is far from rosy. Write a letter about this period in Coleridge’s life…it can be from any of the main players to whomever you like….. Closing date: August 31st 2015

Email your flash fiction to info@literatureworks.org.uk (maximum 500 words) by 30th August, and we might put it up on the site (and there’ll be a small prize!)
