Fiddlehead Radio: A Discussion with Joan Clark

Fiddlehead Radio: A Discussion with Joan Clark | Poetry and Love Letters | Scoop.it


I recently had the opportunity to sit down with acclaimed Canadian author and current University of New Brunswick writer-in-residence Joan Clark. Our discussion moved from her early career in Alberta up to her novel-in-progress (which is set in Sussex, NB) and the state of Canadian publishing.

 

Joan Clark is a Member of the Order of Canada and the author of two short story collections, four novels, six novels for younger readers, and three picture books. She lives in St. John’s, Newfoundland.

A Kick at the Darkness: Words Fall, Spirits Soar

A Kick at the Darkness: Words Fall, Spirits Soar | Poetry and Love Letters | Scoop.it

Just under three weeks ago I found myself in Woodstock, New Brunswick as guest reader and panelist for WordsFall, the semi-annual literary festival of the Writers' Federation of New Brunswick.

I should have written about it before now, but, honestly, by the time I got back I was pretty knackered and launchd myself into the teaching work that had begun to pile up. Even now it sort of feels like one of the best dreams I've ever had.

Stephen King surprises New Brunswick high school students

Stephen King surprises New Brunswick high school students | Poetry and Love Letters | Scoop.it
SUSSEX, New Brunswick — A small group of Sussex high school students got the writing critique of a lifetime Friday morning when literary horror-master Stephen King made a surprise visit to their school.

 

King, the renowned author of books such as “The Stand,” “The Shining,” “The Dark Tower” series, “The Green Mile” and the recent JFK book “11/22/63: A Novel,” gathered with 18 lucky students in the school’s library to provide feedback on their work.

“I thought it was absolutely insane that he was actually at our school,” said Matthew Beyer, a 12th-grade student who shook King’s hand.

“It was quite a shock. We just walked into the library and Stephen King is standing there.”

King then spoke to about 80 other students in the auditorium where he told them about his short time as a high school teacher and about how he dreams up the ideas for his novels.

King was at the school after a yearlong campaign to get the author, who lives in Bangor, Maine, to visit the school by Halloween 2012.

Canadian Women In the Literary Arts Announces Inaugural Critic,  Sue Sinclair | CWILA: Canadian Women In The Literary Arts | Poetry and Love Letters | Scoop.it

Sue Sinclair has been named the Canadian Women in the Literary Arts’ first Resident Critic, a post she will hold for the next year. The Critic-in-Residence, a paid position, has been created to address gender gaps in Canada’s book review culture, as revealed by the CWILA Numbers.

 

Critic-in-Residence Committee Manager, Laura Moss, says that it was “heartening” to see how many strong applications were received for this inaugural position. Applications came from almost every province in Canada, from those starting out and from those with years of experience. Moss thinks that “the depth of the applicant pile really speaks to the deep desire to change review culture in Canada.

Moncton Acadian author thrilled by top literary prize - New Brunswick - CBC News | Poetry and Love Letters | Scoop.it
An Acadian writer from Moncton says she couldn’t be happier about winning the Governor General's literary prize for French fiction.

“My reaction was, it's fantastic,” France Daigle told CBC News after claiming the prestigious $25,000 prize earlier this week in Montreal.

Her book, Pour sûr, describes the life of Acadians living in Moncton.

The book, which took about 10 years to complete, has been described as encyclopedic, Labryinthian and a Rubik's cube.

Husk by Corey Redekop: Review The Star

Husk by Corey Redekop: Review The Star | Poetry and Love Letters | Scoop.it
Redekop’s gay, actor zombie is anything but a dead beat...

 


There's a point near the end of Husk where the narrator, long dead and without much of a body left to drag around, decides to embrace his "pop culture heritage" and start acting more like a traditional zombie.

That heritage isn't essential to enjoying Corey Redekop’s book, his second novel, but some background helps.
