The annual reading by participants in UPEI’s Creative Writing Master Class will take place on Monday, March 24, at 7:00 pm in the Confederation Centre Art Gallery. Some of the Island’s most talented new writers will read excerpts from their fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction, and playscripts.
The featured writers are Damon Ansems, Chris Bailey, Keith Burgoyne, Michael Conway, Angela Deighan, Sarah Glassford, Ben Hartley, Ruby Madigan, Lori Mayne, Olivia Robinson, Justin Shaw, Toni Timmins, and Ken Williams.
The audience will encounter a circus with a purple giraffe named Vivian who speaks with a New York accent; a young female schoolteacher during the First World War whose brother is fighting in Europe’s trenches; mating rituals in the age of sexting and social media; an Islander’s journey from a Charlottetown boyhood to Army postings in the world’s trouble-spots; and other samples from the literary world of wonders.
The public is invited and admission is free.
