Work for September workshop

Dear Monthlies

As I mentioned at the end of the August workshop, the homework for this month is theoretical.

It is to read the short story, POISON by Henrietta Rose-Innes, which won this year’s Caine Prize for the best short story in English by an African writer

Then, to work out why you think it is a ‘good’ short story, and send me your list of  SEVEN THINGS ABOUT ‘POISON’ THAT MAKE IT A GOOD SHORT STORY.

Email me your list by the 31 August, and I will compile all the lists into a handout for the September workshop.

You will find the story, and an interview with the author, on:   http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2008/jul/09/caineprize
