UPEI Writer-in-Residence Jay Ruzesky will give a public Facebook Live reading on February 9 at 7 pm, and will lead two online half-day creative nonfiction workshops via Zoom from 12:30–4 pm, February 6 and 13.

Ruzesky is a novelist, poet, travel and memoir writer, photographer, and professor of creative writing, Canadian literature, and film studies at Vancouver Island University.

The True Stories, Well Told workshop on February 6 will focus on telling stories about the external world of “adventures, experiences, sensual places,” and on “the way stories transport us and make us consider the world more deeply.” The February 13 workshop, Why Me? The Self as Subject, will concentrate on how we all have worthwhile stories to tell about our own lives, stories we want and need to tell. 

Information on the workshops and the public reading can be found on the Winter’s Tales FB page. For information about Ruzesky and his books, visit wordpress.viu.ca/ruzeskyj/biography. Info: Lee Ellen Pottie, lpottie@upei.ca.
