Beaconsfield Historic House

The annual public reading by UPEI’s Creative Writing Master Class will take place on Friday, March 29 at 7:00 pm in the Carriage House of Beaconsfield Historic House, 2 Kent Street, Charlottetown.

The reading will showcase emerging and seasoned writers: Margie Carmichael, Shannon Courtney, Angela Deighan, Kandace Hagen, Rose Henbest, Robbi Henderson-Canning, Stephen Plouffe, Glenda Rodd, Carter Smith, and Monika Stewart.

These writers will take the audience to Euston Street in Charlottetown and the outback of Australia, to the realm of Faery and the New World experiences of Irish immigrants a century ago.

Their works will evoke transforming gender and sexual relationships, coming of age in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, the challenges to mental health in stressful contexts, and the stresses that humanity is inflicting on our environment.

The reading is sponsored by the UPEI English Department. Admission is free, and everyone is welcome.
