Do you have a story hidden in your drawer? Have you always thought about writing one? Nick Mount, the fiction editor for Walrus Magazine will discuss the form and potential of the short story genre.

Whether a formal memoir—a careful act of literary construction – or an informal family history, written for your children and your grandchildren, writing memoir is a uniquely satisfying experience. Award-winning writer Joe Kertes will guide you in this process and offer help with your ethical will, a very Jewish document designed to pass ethical values from one generation to the next.
