Jolly Lits

Latest News-WordStruck

In 1993, Jack Livesley filled in for a missing creative writing teacher. It was the beginning of 13 years of weekly workshops for aspiring writers, who became known as the Jolly Lits. Twenty-six of these writers have collaborated to produce this book. The writing presented includes short stories and character sketches, humour, memoirs, essays and poetry.

WordStruck is a 170-page, softcover book. It is available for $15 (Canadian currency). If you would like to order a copy, please email Bill Rundle at
