Join Us in Celebrating 75 Years!

Our editor Sue Sinclair captured that feeling of anticipation that comes with an anniversary in her introduction to our 75th anniversary issue. She wrote "Time stops for a moment when an anniversary comes around; we pause on the threshold of what's been and what's to come." This year we invite you to stop with us as we take a moment to celebrate this milestone, as well as the talented writers who contributed to this very special issue of The Fiddlehead

Over the final months of 2020 we will be hosting a series of free online readings featuring the writers whose work appears in the 75th anniversary issue. The series will highlight writers from across the country as we tour through the issue, beginning on the east coast and moving west.

Join us in celebrating 75 years of literary foraging as these authors share their work and answer your questions. An ASL interpreter will be present to translate the events in real time. The dates, list of readers and registration link for the free events are posted below:
