Maritime Writers' Workshop Happens Next Week

UNB's Fredericton campus will be alive with words next week (July 8-12) as the 38th annual Maritime Writers' Workshops takes place. Participants can choose from a wide array of one-day or -evening workshops from many accomplished New Brunswick authors and publishers. Included among this year's instructors are two of The Fiddlehead's editors: fiction co-editor Gerard Beirne is leading "The Long and Short of Fiction Writing" on July 10 and poetry co-editor Ian LeTourneau is offering "Approaches to Nature Poetry" on July 12.

There are also a few free events that are open to the public. On July 10 (4 - 5:30 pm), Carolyn Gammon and Israel Unger launch their book The Unwritten Diary of Israel Unger in the Milham Room at the Harriet Irving Library. And then to wrap up the week, there will be an open mic at Windsor Castle Bar at the Alden Nowlan House at 676 Windsor Street. This event begins at 4:30 and all are welcome to come hear what the participants have been working on all week.

And if you hurry, you still have a few days left to register: the deadline is this Friday, July 5!
