Fierce Ink Press and the Mount’s English Department will be presenting a discussion about writing creative non-fiction, featuring local authors Chris Benjamin, Ben Boudreau, Alison DeLory, Gail Lethbridge, and our very own English alumna Crystal Vaughan, all of whom have published in the Fierce Shorts series. Joining them will be special guest Gerard Collins, author of Finton Moon, an award-winning novel currently nominated for the 2014 International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award.
Thursday, January 30
The MacDonald Room in the Library
6:30 – 8:30 p.m.
All are welcome to attend. Refreshments will be served. Copies of books by the participating authors will be available for purchase.
Collins has said that he is looking forward to this event “because I thrive on that sense of camaraderie between both writers and audience all gathered to discuss writing and think about things in an intriguing way.”
