Birthing Short Stories

Posted on January 22 by Russell Wangersky

Almost every short story I write starts the same way: I hear a snatch of a sentence, see a small situation unfold, and wonder what would happen next. A man in his twenties brings his new girlfriend to a bar, and runs into his old girlfriend in a space packed so tight, they have no choice but to be shoulder to shoulder.

I get to overhear this small snippet at the beginning: “Hey. Have you met Lauren? This is Lauren.” “Hi, I’m Lauren.”

We are excited for all the new titles and authors. Read all about Dundurn’s purchase of Thomas Allen Publishers in the links below.
