Daytime Talk Series: The Art of the Glimpse: Reading and Writing the Contemporary Short Story with Lorrie Bodger

Tuesday, January 10, 2017 - 10:00 AM
| For Members Only | Whitridge Room | Free of charge | Advance registration required

Alice Munro was deemed the “master of the contemporary short story” when she was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2013. In this talk, author and writing teacher Lorrie Bodger will investigate the short story: How long or how short are they? Can you write both novels and short stories? When and why should you write short stories? And where do you send your stories when you’re ready to try for publication?

Lorrie Bodger is a writing teacher, private editor, and author of more than thirty books. Now that her novel is finished, she’s working on a collection of linked short stories.
