54. How This Story Began

Presented by The Vancouver Writers Fest

Carol Bruneau, Dawn Dumont, Cynthia Flood, Bill Gaston, Jessica Westhead, Deborah Willis
Host: Paul Grant

Short stories are a challenging form—the germ of an idea grows quickly, flowers briefly and needs to leave the reader both satisfied and longing for more. So many more avenues to explore, so many questions left unanswered. Six writers not only read tonight from their latest collections, but also reveal, to introduce the reading, what—or who, or where—was the impetus for that story. Deborah Willis’ collection, for example, features a woman who signs up for the first manned mission to Mars, another who finds a gaping hole in the floor of her home, a hole that only she can see. Just where do these ideas originate? Tonight’s your chance to peek at the creative process, and hear some fine short stories, too.
