2024 UPEI Creative Writing Master Class

The annual public reading by UPEI’s Creative Writing Master Class will take place on Wednesday, March 13, at 7:00 pm in Schurman Market Square, Don and Marion McDougall Hall.

The reading will showcase 16 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, and Emma Willoughby.

The students will read excerpts of fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction, scriptwriting, and young people’s fiction. 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. The audience will also hear about meeting 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 celebrate vibrant writing.

The master class reading is sponsored by the UPEI English Department and Faculty of Arts, and admission is free.
