This week on Lit Pen we’ll hear from Brian Francis, an alumnus of VFA 2019. Brian Francis’s most recent book, Missed Connections: A Memoir in Letters Never Sent, was a finalist for the 2022 Trillium Book Award. His 2019 YA novel, Break in Case of Emergency, was a finalist for the Governor General’s Literary Awards. His first novel, Fruit, was a 2009 CBC Canada Reads finalist.
We encourage you to follow Brian’s writing exercise, Beats in Fiction, and share your results with us in the Victoria Festival of Authors’ Lit Pen Facebook group.
