Writing Short Stories, with Téa Mutonji
September 26 at 5:30pm
The Humber School for Writers returns to the Festival with a series of daily professional writing masterclasses led by its renowned faculty members and special guests. Each 90-minute class will focus on a specific aspect of writing craft. Sign up for one or attend them all! All writing levels are welcome.
Author and poet Téa Mutonji believes that truth isn’t in the narrative, but the details. This workshop will teach you the steps for writing short stories. Learn techniques to create recognizable landscapes for your characters to exist within, in the limits of a short story format. Using examples from her debut short story collection, Shut Up, You’re Pretty, Mutonji will demonstrate to participants how to create self-contained stories that will still read as one work through thematic connections.
