I'm reading in Cobourg
So back in the fall of 2010, when I was writer-in-residence at Queen's University, I got to meet some very talented young writers. Three of those writers are doing a small Ontario tour this week, and they're stopping on August 7 here in Cobourg, where I live. They've asked me to read with them.
The three are poets Michael Casteels and Nick Papaxanthos, and fictioneer Christine Miscione. They were among my star "students" at 529 Watson Hall. If it hadn't been for 529, they might not ever have met each other. I certainly never would have met them.
They are wildly different writers, but they are all smart and ambitious and extremely entertaining.
We're reading at an awesome art shop/gallery, Impresario, at 7 p.m. I think I'm going to perform the Cobourg premiere of the six-minute version of my theatrical masterpiece, The Ape Play. And perhaps I'll read a very short story that I finished earlier this week. And maybe my Lee Marvin story.
I look forward to hearing Christine, Nick, and Michael. I haven't heard them read their work since Kingston.
Over and out.
