LV14 Workshop Series x Riddle Fence present Waub Rice: From Spoken To Written: Adapting Oral Storytelling To Literature at The Alt Hotel (Orange Room).

About the workshop:

Passing stories down orally from generation to generation is a foundational cultural practice for people around the world. Today, writers capture, adapt, and document spoken stories in many ways. In this workshop, Waubgeshig Rice discusses how the oral stories of his Anishinaabe heritage influence his fiction writing. He’ll share tips on adapting oral traditions and stories to written forms, with a focus on dialogue and character development.

He’s a writer, listener, speaker, language learner, and a martial artist, holding a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. He is the author of the short story collection Midnight Sweatlodge and the novels Legacy, Moon of the Crusted Snow, and Moon of the Turning Leaves. He appreciates loud music and the four seasons. He lives in N’Swakamok – also known as Sudbury, Ontario – with his wife and three sons.
