New MFA program in Creative Nonfiction
Our Hero turns up on a roster of nine writer-mentors for a new Master of Fine Arts program in Creative Nonfiction. The program, which launches this August at the University of King's College in Nova Scotia, is the brainchild of the well-known Halifax author Stephen Kimber. The nine writer-mentors from across the country have together published nearly 100 books. Ken is excited to be part of a CNF initiative coming out of the East, and to find himself on a team that includes Marq de Villiers, Tim Falconer, David Hayes, Lori A. May, Lorri Neilsen Glenn, Candace Savage, Alisa Smith, and Harry Thurston. Don Sedgwick, the veteran publisher, literary agent, and university professor, will serve as executive director of the program, which is the first of its kind in Canada. Deadline for applications is April 1, 2013. Maybe see you there!
