A coffee-stained reading in Ottawa, Oct. 3

I'm appearing at the Ottawa International Writers' Festival on Tuesday (October 3)! This is my first "solo" event at the Festival, and it'll involve readings from my poetry, fiction, and essays -- mostly unpublished stuff -- and an onstage chat conducted by Stephen Brockwell, who's an awesome guy, a great poet, and rather handsome.

I will likely be in town Tuesday through the following Sunday. If anyone is interested in a manuscript evaluation (up to 10 pages of work) during my stay, please email me, and we'll arrange something. Such "blue-pencil sessions" are sort of like getting your own private writing workshop.

Well, here's the info on the event, pulled from the Festival's website:

TUESDAY, October 3 @ 7:00 pm
Hunkamooga’s Return:
Coffee-stained Notes from the Underground
An evening with Stuart Ross

At the Library & Archives of Canada, 395 Wellington, Ottawa

$12 / $10 Student or Senior / $6 Festival Member

Canada’s inimitable master of the surreal, Stuart Ross, a Festival favourite, is back for an unforgettable evening of prose and poetry. Don’t miss the opportunity to hear from his novel-in-progress, some new poems and a taste of his acclaimed essays – plus an on-stage interview by Ottawa’s Stephen Brockwell.

“If Stuart Ross was living and working in the United States, and writing the exact same poetry he does now, he would be rich and famous. Well, famous, at least.” — George Murray, The Globe & Mail
