Dawn Promislow on short stories: part 1

Here at Bookclub-in-a-Box we talk a lot about the novels that have an impact on us — but this week, we’d like to suggest you try something a little different; a little more concise. Meet Dawn Promislow, a short story writer who grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa, and studied English and French literature at the University of Cape Town. Although she spent some time living in London, England, she has been living in Toronto, Canada, since 1987. Her first collection, Jewels and Other Stories, was published last year by TSAR Publications, and she will be reading from her collection on Tuesday, March 22 at Prana Coffee (2130A Queen St. E.).

We spoke with Dawn about her influences, her inspiration, and the differences between short stories and other forms of writing. Here’s part one of a two-part interview; come back this Wednesday for more from Dawn.
