Our program has an honoured tradition of participating in the Eden Mills Writers' Festival, and this year is no exception. On Sunday, September 10th, you'll find a number of current students and alumni reading at one of the many beautiful festival venues (as well as many past mentors and friends of the program). Here are some MFA highlights:
At 1:30pm, you can check out incoming MFA student and Guelph local Greg Rhyno, as part of the Vocumus Press set in the Sculpture Garden.
At 2:30pm, alumna Zoe Whittall will be featured in the Cottage for a set called Anchor on a Thread, with Leanne Betasamosake Simpson and Suzette Mayer. In the Sculpture Garden, program director Catherine Bush moderates Lost Horizons with Carol Off, Dr. Tim Cook, and Tanya Talaga.
Finally, at 3:30pm in the Sculpture Garden, current and incoming students Marilo Nuñez, Walter Palmer, Jacquelyn Ross, Ashish Seth, Leanne Simpson, and Ambika Thompson will deliver an all Guelph MFA set introduced by Catherine Bush.
This festival is always a warm, inspiring event, and well worth the drive to Eden Mills, Ontario—so get your carpool sorted and we'll see you there!
