We're so excited to announce the launch of Arrivals and Departures: Objects | Food | Memories, the second in the Arrivals & Departures chapbook series! Arrivals and Departures emerges from two Fiddlehead-sponsored "Writing for Newcomers" workshops. The Fredericton workshop, Eat, Drink, Write, took place at the Multicultural Centre on November 2, 2019, and was facilitated by Salar Ghatta. The Halifax workshop, Arrivals and Departures: Objects, Memories and Transitions, was at Pier 21, the Canadian Museum of Immigration, on August 2, 2019. It was facilitated by Anthazia Kadir.
Though The Fiddlehead was not able to host a live launch this year, eight of the authors who contributed to the chapbook have filmed wonderful readings of their work which are available on our YouTube channel:
