Leesburg First Friday:Ciporin and Allison
The Art of Writing Short Fiction

Fri, 6 Sep, 2013 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Join two experienced practitioners of short fiction for a panel discussion on the short story and short short story form--from practical writing tips to approaches on how to market short fiction. Time for Q&As will follow.  Former Life magazine reporter Sue Allison has had stories and essays published in the Harvard Review, Antioch Review, and other journals.  Her essay “Taking a Reading” was included in the Best American Essays 2009 and “Made to Measure” from the Antioch Review won a 2013 Pushcart Prize. In July 2012, Leone Ciporin's story, “Invisible Women,” was published in The Hook, a Charlottesville weekly, after being selected by John Grisham as third place winner in The Hook's fiction contest. She has published short mysteries, including four mini-mysteries in Woman's World magazine. Leone lives in Charlottesville and is active with Writer House there.

 

NEW IN 2013!
5-Minute Mini-Workshops

New this year, in response to the demand for more work on craft and more feedback on your own work, we will offer Leesburg First Friday participants an opportunity to share their writing.

Each month, three randomly selected attendees will have the opportunity to share their writing, and receive feedback, for five minutes. Participants may use their five minutes in any way they please. For example, they may spend the entire time reading or they may spend part of the time reading and part of the time soliciting critique. Participation is voluntary. If you are interested, please bring a writing selection with you.

Location: Leesburg Town Hall
25 West Market Street
Leesburg, VA 20176
Fees: $6 ($4 for Writer's Center members and Leesburg residents).
