THE PERFECT SHORT STORY

THE PERFECT SHORT STORY

Friday 26 August 2016, 3:45pm—4:45pm

Is there such a thing as the perfect short story and, if so, how do you identify it? More elusively, how do you create it? Three acclaimed writers (and teachers) talk about the exacting craft of short fiction, discuss what, in their opinion, makes a short story great, and read from their latest collections. With Tracey Slaughter (Deleted Scenes for Lovers), Bill Manhire (The Stories of Bill Manhire) and Frankie McMillan (My Mother and the Hungarians and other small fictions).
