Lennox Picture

The Slow Burn or the Gutpunch

~ Building and Breaking Tension

In time for some dark Halloween writing, author Matt Lennox delivers a talk on writing thrillers. He will address the issues of creating conflict and tension in that genre.
The workshop following lunch will flow from the talk. Participants are invited to suggest scenes of conflict and tension in order to discuss how their own writing may have been influenced.
Matt Lennox is the author of "Men of Salt, Men of Earth", "The Carpenter", and "Knucklehead". He has also written short fiction and non-fiction for the National Post, the Walrus, and Toronto Life, and has been longlisted for the CBC creative non-fiction contest. Outside of writing, Matt is an officer in the Canadian Armed Forces Reserves. He served in Afghanistan in 2008. He lives in Toronto with his wife, Natalie Jacyk, and their dog, Johnny Cash.
