The Fiddlehead Summer Fiction Issue Celebration, Part 2

Despite the cooler temperature today in downtown Fredericton, fiction co-editor Mark Jarman entertained a small, but appreciative, audience from his Fredericton Arts Alliance artist-in-residence studio in the old soldiers' barracks. Jarman has been sharing the studio this week with basket maker Katie Nicholas, chatting with tourists about his own writing, and promoting The Fiddlehead. As part of the residencies, Fredericton artists engage the public and tourists with outreach events over the lunch hour. Today, Jarman hosted a second celebration of The Fiddlehead's summer fiction issue.

Summer Fiction Issue Launch

The Fiddlehead launched the Summer Fiction issue last Thursday, August 1 at Gallery 78 in downtown Fredericton. More than a dozen fiction lovers attended the festivities to hear readings from contributor Ray Fraser and samples from out-of-town contributors read by Fiddlehead editors. Many thanks to Gallery 78!

Summer Fiction Issue Launch!

Please drop by Gallery 78 August 1 for a launch and celebration of a very special Summer Fiction Issue of The Fiddlehead, an issue which boasts new stories from Dan Woodrell (writer of Oscar winner Winter’s Bone), Craig Davidson (writer of the film Rust and Bone and a UNB grad), local author Raymond Fraser, and three accomplished Irish writers, Mary O’Donnell, Mike McCormack and Eoin McNamee, the latter a Man Booker Prize nominee.
