This Week at The Fiddlehead

The final UNB Reading Series event of the semester is both a launch of The Best Canadian Poetry 2010 (which includes five poems first published in The Fiddlehead) and a farewell reading by John Barton, the 2010/2011 UNB writer-in-residence and one of The Fiddlehead poetry judges for the 2010 contest.

Also reading their poetry as part of the launch will be The Fiddlehead’s editor Ross Leckie, poets Anne Compton, and Allan Cooper. The reading takes place on Tuesday, April 12, at 8 p.m. in the East Gallery of Memorial Hall.

Steven Heighton The Fiddlehead’s 2010 Short Fiction Judge and 2010 National Magazine Award winner, is on The CBC program The Next Chapter. Check out Steven’s episode with Guy Gavriel Kay about social media and its affect on the creative process.
