Fiddlehead News

The Fiddlehead 247 (spring 2011), which contained the winners of the 20th annual contest, received a lovely review from NewPages.com. Go take a look!

Also congratulations to Clark Blaise whose new book, The Meagre Tarmac, made the Scotiabank Giller Prize long list. His story, "Brewing Tea in the Dark," which was published in The Fiddlehead 248, is from this collection. There's additional wonderful news for Clark Blaise, The Meagre Tarmac has been shortlisted for the 2011 Rogers Writers' Trust Fiction Prize. The Globe and Mail has an excerpt from The Meagre Tarmac and a readers' poll on who should win this year's prize (updated 28 October) .
