Event description
Paper Covers Rock is a new annual readers and writers festival on Salt Spring Island, BC, taking place October 1-3, 2021

About this event

Have you ever wondered how a novel or a short story or a poem or an essay is actually made? And what makes a particular piece of writing gripping, when others fail to excite? And when telling a story or communicating an idea, why choose one particular detail over another?

In this workshop, Michael will discuss creative and practical strategies to improve the impact and emotional resonance of your writing across all genres. This workshop will appeal to any writer interested in learning to better structure, refine, and energize their work.

MICHAEL CHRISTIE is the award-winning and best-selling author of the novel Greenwood, which was longlisted for the Scotiabank Giller Prize, shortlisted for the Ethel Wilson prize, and won the Crime Writers of Canada Award for best novel. Publication rights for Greenwood have been sold in over fifteen countries, and a limited television series is currently in development.

His previous novel, If I Fall, If I Die, was longlisted for the Scotiabank Giller Prize, the Kirkus Prize, and selected as a New York Times Editors' Choice Pick. His linked collection of stories, The Beggar's Garden, was longlisted for the Scotiabank Giller Prize, shortlisted for the Writers' Trust Prize for Fiction, and won the Vancouver Book Award. His essays and book reviews have appeared in the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the Globe & Mail.

A former carpenter and homeless shelter worker, Michael now divides his time between Victoria, British Columbia, and Galiano Island, where he lives with his wife, the writer Cedar Bowers, and their two sons, in a timber frame house that he built himself.
