Below is the list of writers scheduled to read at the University of New Brunswick, Fredericton during this academic year. All the readings are free! So if you are here in Fredericton (or coming by for a visit), take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to hear great Canadian authors reading from their new works.

The Fiddlehead's office space is in Campus House, a small 1950s ranch house in a small wooded area at the edge of the campus. Yesterday this was the view from the managing editor's window.

A great time was had by all at the Toronto launch of The Fiddlehead’s Summer Fiction issue at the Dora Keogh Pub. It was a perfect setting for relaxing, having a cold drink, and listening to writers reading selections from their Fiddlehead stories and other works.
Pictured below, Leon Rooke and Rebecca Rosenblum entertain the crowd by reading from their Fiddlehead stories “Art of the Pig” and “Dream Inc.”

As promised during the Radio Fiddlehead podcast, here is a list of my ten favorite poetry collections published in Britain and Ireland over the past decade (in no particular order). This isn't pretending to be a "Best Of" list by any means, so if you're reading this and notice something's missing, feel free to fill in my blanks.
