Stop! Look! Listen! is your one-stop destination for The Fiddlehead's cultural engagement.
On March 5, 1983, two high-school students, Corinne Shriver (pictured on the left with Nowlan) and Carmen McKell, interviewed Alden Nowlan months before he died. We're pleased to present the audio version of the interview here. To see Corinne Schriver Wasilewski’s introduction and a transcript of the full interview verbatim, click here.
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.
Poetry Weekend 2017 featured more than 60 poets from all over Canada, many of whom read from new or recently released collections. Two Fiddlehead team members read from newly released chapbooks: Ian LeTourneau read from Core Sample, published by Frog Hollow press, and Emily Skov-Nielson read from Volta, published by Anstruther Press. Skov-Nielsen's editor, Jim Johnstone, also read from his Véhicule Press collection The Chemical Life, which was launched in Montreal on October 20th. Other readings from new collections by UNB associated poets included Claire Kelly reading from Maunder (Palimpsest Press), Allison LaSorda reading from Stray (Goose Lane), and Kayla Geitzler reading from That Light Feeling Under Your Feet (NeWest Press, forthcoming 2018).
Over the course of the weekend, The Fiddlehead editorial assistants Noah Page and William Bonfiglio interviewed poets Patrick O’Reilly, Sarah Cooper, Adam Dickinson, Benjamin Dugdale, Kate Cayley, Kateri Lanthier, Rebecca Păpucaru, and Rebecca Salazar.
