Welcome to our latest Fiddlehead Radio podcast. In this podcast, we bring you a poetry reading by Robert Gibbs.

Radio Fiddlehead No. 5: Interview with Joan Clark

Fiddlehead Editorial Assistant Kyle Connelly sat down with acclaimed Canadian author and current University of New Brunswick writer-in-residence Joan Clark in November 2012. Their discussion moved from her early career in Alberta up to her novel-in-progress (which is set in Sussex, NB) and the state of Canadian publishing.

Joan Clark is a Member of the Order of Canada and the author of two short story collections, four novels, six novels for younger readers, and three picture books. She lives in St. John’s, Newfoundland.

Fiddlehead Editorial Assistant Claire Kelly sat down with Canadian poet and journalist Anita Lahey to talk about her latest book of poems Spinning Side Kick (Signal Editions, 2011). Anita's poetry is equal parts playful and profound, and their conversation bounced from the fun of onomatopoeia to the foggy future of literary magazines.

Anita Lahey's previous book Out to Dry in Cape Breton (Signal Editions, 2006) was nominated for the Ottawa Book Award and the Trillium book award for poetry. Previously, she was the editor of Arc Poetry Magazine
