The Art of Short Story Writing
Tuesday, November 18, 6:15pm – 7:30pm
‘The Art of Short Story Writing’ Workshop
River John Public Library (902-351-2599)
Hosted by Writer-in-Residence Chris Benjamin, this workshop will explore the challenging art of short fiction and how to pack a novel’s punch, not to mention a beginning, middle and end, into just a few thousand words. Bring your pens and pencils, your papers and pads. Writing activities will abound.
Chris is perhaps best-known as a journalist but he has also published about a dozen short stories in literary journals, magazines and anthologies (published by the likes of the Dalhousie Review, Descant, Nashwaak Review, Galleon, Roseway Publishing, Pottersfield Press, Voiceprint Canada, The Society, Rattling Books, Third Person Press, The Coast, and Fierce Ink).
