Would-be writers have a chance to learn more about the art at two free taster workshops tomorrow led by a top short story writer.

Anna Metcalfe, a lecturer at UEA, was runner up for the Pulitzer prize for short stories and the Sunday Times prize for short stories, in 2014.

She will be attending a day of events celebrating Norfolk's ancient Paston family, taking place at St Margaret's Church, Paston, from 11am-4pm.

Short stories on the theme Dreams of Life and Death, written by those on a four-week course led by Ms Metcalfe, will be on show.

Attractions also include an exhibition of paintings, ceramics and textiles, church tours, storytelling, re-enactors and refreshments. All the activities are inspired by the church's medieval wall paintings.

The domestic letters of the Pastons are highly valued by Wars of the Roses historians.
