Interested in writing? Going to be in Fredericton during the first week of July? Then you might want to consider attending the 2011 Maritime Writers’ Workshops. One of Canada’s oldest and most established events for aspiring writers, the Maritime Writers’ Workshops, is open to all and runs from July 4 – 8 on the campus of the University of New Brunswick.
Scholars, researchers, students, artists, and performers from all over Canada and the world are coming to Fredericton for the 2011 Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences. This enormous conference will be held over the next ten days on the campuses of the University of New Brunswick and St. Thomas University. But Congress is not just a place where scholars present their latest findings (including research papers on The Fiddlehead!) to each other.
Here in New Brunswick, there are signs of spring everywhere, the snow is rapidly becoming a distant memory, the fiddlehead ferns are popping up along the riverbanks, and The Fiddlehead contest issue – no. 247 – is out!
The Spring 2011 issue of The Fiddlehead (no. 247) will be hitting the newsstands and subscribers’ mailboxes in late April and early May. Featured in the issue are the winners and honourable mentions of our Twentieth Annual Literary Contest and new poetry and fiction from writers such as Darryl Whetter, Micheal Laverty, Richardo Pau-Llosa.
