Readers recognise suspense but how is this effect created in fiction? Narrative tension keeps a reader turning the pages, waiting for an event or dramatic moment. It is an essential part of good fiction but in practice it can be difficult to create tension in a short story or novel. In this session we will look at examples of suspense and narrative tension and through writing exercises we will develop these aspects of our own writing.
