52. Big Stories, Small Packages

The Vancouver Writers Fest presents
52. Big Stories, Small Packages


Moderator: Caroline Adderson

Four deft short story authors consider the challenges and advantages that come with keeping it brief in a dazzling discussion on craft.

Capturing an entire world, a pivotal journey or a startling emotional truth in just a few thousand words is no small feat—but these four authors prove that, in the world of fiction, less can be more. Whether speaking to diaspora, fraught family ties or even the hilarity of the holiday season, Philip Huynh (The Forbidden Purple City), Anosh Irani (Translated from the Gibberish), Zalika Reid-Benta (Frying Plantain) and riotous Festival veteran Bill Richardson (I Saw Three Ships) consider the challenges and advantages that come with keeping it brief. Prepare to be dazzled.

Suitable for grades 10-12 and adults.
