This week at WriterHouse: Josh Weil and Essentials of Mystery Writing

Josh Weil Event TONIGHT

Just a reminder that this Thursday at 7pm, WriterHouse welcomes critically acclaimed young writer Josh Weil, whose book of three novellas, The New Valley, is set in southwest Virginia. He’ll be discussing “The Renegade Form: The Case for the Novella in Contemporary Fiction.” Book signing to follow. Free and open to the public.

”Weil meticulously imagines people and their histories, and presents them as a product of their places. This is perhaps the hardest thing for a fiction writer of any age, working in any form, to accomplish….Keep writing novellas, Josh Weil, because you write very good ones.” —The New York Times Sunday Book Review
