emerge – An Evening of Words & Ukulele
4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
898 West Broadway
This event is to raise funds for the annual Writer’s Studio student anthology, emerge, and boy, do we have a fantastic Sunday planned for you—the kind that makes you happy to be alive and not in the midst of a zombie apocalypse.There will be music by I Love Uke, literary readings, a silent auction, a plethora of awesome secondhand books for sale, and good people like yourselves to connect with.
Our featured reader is poet Raoul Fernandes, a graduate of The Writer’s Studio at Simon Fraser University in 2009. He was a finalist for the 2010 Bronwen Wallace Award for Emerging Writers, and winner of the 2010 Sakura Award at the Vancouver International Cherry Blossom, runner up in subTerrain’s Lush Triumphant Awards in 2013. He has been published in numerous literary journals and is an editor for the online poetry magazine The Maynard. His first collection of poems, “Transmitter and Receiver” came out this Spring from Nightwood Editions.
