Writing Humour & Satire with Alexander Boldizar Wednesday, November 8, 7 – 8:30 p.m.

Have you read an insightful and entertaining novel recently and wondered how the author managed to create a stimulating plot, believable yet eccentric characters and make you laugh out loud all between the covers of one book? Would you like to try your hand at writing such a short story or novel yourself? Then this evening is for you!

Come join Alexander Boldizar and learn the basics, and some advanced tricks, of writing humor and satire. A lawyer, art critic and adventurer turned writer, Alexander’s first novel, The Ugly, has earned the Chanticleer Grand Prize Winner for Best Book of 2016, The Somerset Prize for Best Literary Fiction of 2016, was the 2016 NGIBA winner for Humor and Comedy, was named one of the Best Books of 2016 by Entropy Magazine, and has been nominated for the Governor General’s Award. Alexander was also one of the guest writers at 2017’s North Shore Writers Festival Writers Café and on the morning panel, to rave reviews. So whether you are a reader who would like more insight into the creative mind behind satiric works, or a writer who would like to try your own hand at the craft, this evening is for you.

Admission is free, but registration is required. Presented in partnership with the North Shore Writers' Association.
