March 7: When Facts Meet the Imagination
Speaker: Dave Margoshes 

Our own lives, and the lives of our family, friends and others we know, are great source material for short story writers, novelists, essayists and poets. “Autobiographical” is not a dirty word when applied to fiction. But how, as Bellow put it, to “electrify” the facts of real life? In this “Write After Lunch” talk, fiction writer and poet Dave Margoshes will consider some possibilities.

Can't make it to the office? Watch the event on Livestream (link forthcoming).

 

Saskatoon-area writer Dave Margoshes has published widely in Canadian magazines and has many books of fiction and poetry. His work has appeared widely in Canadian literary magazines and anthologies, including six times in the Best Canadian Stories volumes. He was a finalist for the Journey Prize in 2009. His Bix’s Trumpet and Other Stories won two prizes at the 2007 Saskatchewan Book Awards, including Book of the Year. He also won the Poetry Prize in 2010 for Dimensions of an Orchard. His collection of linked short stories, A Book of Great Worth, was named one of Amazon.Ca’s Top Hundred Books of 2012.
