On November 19th, odd sundays, at Corked Wine Bar, 83 Regent St., Fredericton, will welcome two poets from Maine. Michael Brown and Valerie Lawson visited odd sundays two years ago, and we expect their visit with us this time will prove once again to be enthusiastic and enjoyable. Plan to be with us on Sunday, Nov. 19 at 2pm for their reading, the open set (bring something to read under 3 minutes!), and the book draw (free!).
Congrats to recent contributors Emily Skov-Nielsen (poem in Spring 2015, No. 263, review in Autumn 2016, No. 269), Robin Richardson (poems in Winter 2014, No. 258), and Kate Finegan (story in Spring 2017, No. 271) who are on The Puritan's 6th annual Thomas Morton Memorial Prize longlist! Skov-Nielsen and Richardson are on the poetry list, and Finegan is on the fiction list.
