The Little Bird Writing Contest opens on March 1st!
Our judge is the acclaimed Alix Ohlin, author of The Missing Person, Babylon and Other Stories, Signs and Wonders, and the Giller-nominated Inside.
The top three stories will be published in the anthology, and I’m giving a story critique and a private mentoring session to the first prize winner. T
o celebrate the contest kick-off, Alix and I are hosting a live chat — or, as we’re calling it, a writing salon!Even if you aren’t entering the contest this year, please do join us for the salon.
We’ll be talking about how we write: I will ask her about how she wrote her story collections, how she wrote her novels, and how she works with first drafts and revision.
What do you want to know? We’re also taking your questions: call in to participate in the live Q+A!
Join us on March 1st at 2pm EST / 11am PST for an hour of inspiring discussion about the writing craft with Alix Ohlin. If you can’t make it live, don’t worry — everyone who is registered will get the recording. You can send a question in ahead of time, too! We promise to answer as many as we can.
