GrubStreet is proud to cosponsor the latest edition of Craft of Draft. The theme: Suspense!
“What happens next?” From genre to literary fiction, that’s the question that keeps readers turning pages. Come hear KELLY FORD (Cottonmouths), STEPHANIE GAYLE (Idyll Fears), and CRYSTAL KING (Feast of Sorrow) discuss how they use suspense to hook their readers.
Want in on the action? Submit a page of your own suspenseful fiction. One lucky winner will have their entry read and discussed by the authors, receive a GrubStreet pint glass + drink, and have their piece and an interview published on the Dead Darlings blog. Email submissions (max 250 words) to email@example.com by Sept 26.
This is a free event, however, reservations must be made here.
Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
