This Friday, October 12, at 7pm, come to UNB's Carleton Hall 139 for a bilingual poetry reading! Featuring excerpts from Le pluvier kildir(written by UNB writer-in-residence Phil Hall and translated by Rose Deprés).
On August 25, 2018, The Fiddlehead hosted the first of our planned events leading up to our 75th anniversary in 2020. We brought Alicia Elliott, our nonfiction editor, and Rebecca Thomas to Fredericton to give workshops, and while they were here, we organized a reading that also featured local Fredericton writer Anthazia Kadir.
Thanks to the Canada Council for the Arts (for a Public Outreach Grant), the Fredericton Public Library, and Ty Giffin and Mathew Gracie (videographers). And thanks to Anthazia, Alicia, and Rebecca for their superb readings!
Need a poetry fix? There's a whole pile of readings coming up, starting with the launch of a new Qwerty issue, then a reading and open mic, then a book launch, and then the 15th annual Poetry Weekend! Qwerty kicks things off at Wilser's Room on Wednesday evening at 7pm.
This summer poetry issue has been co-edited by Sue Sinclair and myself, Ross Leckie, and, as of the fall issue, Sue will be the new editor of The Fiddlehead. I am so excited to see where Sue will take The Fiddlehead. She is already percolating with new ideas, and is ready to shape The Fiddlehead to respond to the ever-evolving ways of conceiving Canadian literature and culture.
