A New Website to Follow, Plus Exciting News from a Recent Contributor

Want to keep updated on the literary culture of New Brunswick, the home province of The Fiddlehead? Our fiction co-editor Gerard Beirne has begun curating a website devoted entirely to New Brunswick writing, The New Brunswick Literary Times. In the website's own words: 
The province of New Brunswick has a rich literary history. The New Brunswick Literary Times provides up-to-date news of writers from or currently living in New Brunswick in a magazine format via articles available online.
One recently featured article caught our attention: an interview at Open Book Ontario with former long-time poetry editor Robert Gibbs.

The Fiddlehead is pleased to report that Orlando Ricardo Menes, a contributor to our recent all-poetry summer issue, has recently won the Prairie Schooner Book Prize for Poetry. His winning manuscript, Fetish, contains the two poems we published in No. 252, "Parable" and "Panegyric for the Condor." Congratulations Orlando!
