Write Michigan Short Story Workshop

George Dila, Ludington-area author of two short story collections and Pushcart Prize nominee, will lead a workshop at the East Grand Rapids branch
from 9:30 AM to noon on Saturday, September 15 aimed at showing attendees how to craft and polish short stories, either just for fun or as part of the Write Michigan contest (which you really should look into entering. You could win cash. You could be published. In a book.)

Dila’s stories are of small-town life. Michigan life. Blue collar, stark, a little dark. Stories about which one reviewer remarked, “Once in a while you come across a book of stories so true you convince yourself you’re reading memoir and you get mad or sad for the writer until you remember this is fiction… Then you get upset that you’ve been had so easily. Then you understand what a good writer this is and you’re happy to be in the hands of this magician.”

    Well, nuts! I saw George last night at a poetry reading (he writes good poetry, but will deny it!) and he did not mention this workshop! I do not see a fee? I hope to take advantage of this if at all possible!
