About the Event
Write Vivid Short Stories – a workshop with Genni Gunn
If the phrase, “This would make a great story!” is one you hear yourself saying, but you get stuck when you place your fingers on your keyboard or you’ve already started writing that story and you want to polish it to perfection, this is the workshop you’ve been dreaming of!
You’ll work with a master of the short story genre, Genni Gunn, to review the basics of plot and theme. Then Genni will let you in on techniques to make your characters come alive, discover the finer points of dialogue, pacing, and maintaining mystery and tension in developing and resolving conflict. You’ll participate in exercises to gear up your grasp of these and other important elements of writing memorable short stories and will have an opportunity to share some of your writing that evolves during the workshop with other participants.
Note: Wordstorm's June 2022 workshop with Genni Gunn had to be rescheduled due to unexpected circumstances. If you registered for the June workshop, your registration has been carried over to the October 22 workshop.
Genni Gunn has published thirteen books. Among them are three novels and three short story collections – Permanent Tourists, Hungers and On the Road. Her books have been finalists for The Commonwealth Writers' Prize for novel Thrice Upon a Time, The Gerald Lampert Poetry Award for Mating in Captivity, The John Glassco Translation Prize for Devour Me Too, The Premio Internazionale Diego Valeri for Literary Translation for Traveling in the Gait of a Fox, The Giller Prize for her novel Solitaria., and the ReLit Award for Permanent Tourists. Her travel essay “Birth Stones” about Matera is nominated for Best American Travel Writing 2021. She lives in Vancouver, and is at work on a new novel set in Italy.
