Trippin’ Out: Transforming your Travel Stories into Memorable Non-fiction

Hamilton Room, Central Branch, Hamilton Public Library

Using examples from some favourite authors and her own experiences, novelist and intrepid cyclist KRISTA FOSS explores how a well-kept travel journal, or just a good memory, can be the raw material for unforgettable non-fiction essays and books.  Bring your own adventure stories and a pen!   

Krista Foss’s first novel Smoke River was published by McClelland & Stewart in May 2014 and is shortlisted for the North American Hammett Prize for literary excellence in crime writing. Her short fiction has been a finalist for the Journey Prize twice  as well as published in several literary journals.  She is a die-hard Hamiltonian and cycling nerd with an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of British Columbia. She is currently working on essays inspired by the two months she spent cycling in Nepal.
