Winter’s Tales

Reading series features UPEI Creative Writing Master Class

The annual public reading by UPEI’s Creative Writing Master Class will take place on March 13 at 7 pm in Schurman Market Square in UPEI’s McDougall Hall. The reading will showcase fifteen of the Island’s talented emerging writers: Kylee Bustard, Madalyn Clempson, Brian Collins, Meghan Dewar, Theodora Douglas-West, Arielle Dunn, Alice Levesque-Carreau, Olivia Jalbert, Donna MacCormac, Peter Macmillan, Claire MacPhee, Noah Manholland, Delphina Morgan, Cybelle Rieber, Larissa Storey, Emma Willoughby. They will read excerpts of fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction, scriptwriting, and young people’s fiction. The audience will visit a private academy for young mermaids, travel with a Canadian soldier to France for the First World War, walk with young Nigerians in the teeming streets of Lagos, and hear a front-line health worker’s poetic recipe for comfort food. They will meet police inspector Tronzomyr Rhodes, a raccoon, and forensic analyst Remus the giant white rat, and witness a conflict between rural residents and an outsider developer. From climate change and murderous rivalry to enchanted hotels and the vicissitudes of love and sex, the evening will spark and sparkle with vibrant writing. This reading is sponsored by the UPEI English Dept and Faculty of Arts. Admission is free.
