About this event


		THIN AIR 2021 Writing Craft : Patricia Robertson image

It’s a misnomer to describe writing as “discovering what you want to say.” The fact is that you don’t know what you want to say in advance of the journey. You’re taking a leap into the unknown. All you know is what to take with you—your laptop, a cup of coffee, and your imagination. Believe it or not, whole novels have been written using this method. As the American novelist E.L. Doctorow said, "Writing is like driving at night in the fog. You can only see as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way."

Join Patricia Robertson, author of three critically acclaimed short story collections, for a writing workshop in which you'll start a story with a writing prompt and learn strategies for how to keep going.

Everyone has a story to share—that is one of the fundamental truths that powers our team. Writers invest in refining their stories, to maximize their impact on readers. Our Writing Craft workshops give all interested writers, whatever their experience, a chance to soak up the expertise of some of the amazing writers featured at THIN AIR 2021. Each workshop is 90 minutes long, and thanks to our partnership with the Winnipeg Public Library and support from Taylor McCaffrey, we are thrilled to offer them without charge!
