With five Scotiabank Giller Prize nominations between them, and a stream of other accolades behind their work, Patrick deWitt, Lisa Moore and Eden Robinson are undoubtedly three of Canada’s most-celebrated and -decorated contemporary fiction writers. What makes a story a bestseller? How did these writers go from keen amateurs to award-winning storytellers? How do they identify what makes a compelling tale? The alchemy of the perfect read is hard to define, but students and aspiring writers alike will be inspired by this unforgettable panel sharing insights and infectious humour.

Anne Fleming is an author of five books, including a book of short stories, a collection of poems, two novels, and a children’s book. She served on the jury of the Dayne Ogilvie Prize alongside Amber Dawn and Vivek Shraya in 2013.
