On the Brink: new series celebrates rising SF stars

On the Brink is a new reading series (first reading on May 29) celebrating some of the newest published Ottawa voices in science-fiction, fantasy and horror! The first featured writers will be Geoff Gander, Mary Pletsch and Jason Sharp. We’ve also invited a professional writer in a growing and increasingly impressive career, to showcase some of his stories and inspire (or warn away from) the writing life. Our Keynote Reader that night will be Ottawa writer Matt Moore! If you’ve never heard Matt's disturbing, touching and mesmerizing works, then don’t miss out. A staple of the Ottawa SFF community, Matt never fails to put on a good show! The event will be hosted by Ottawa writer and storyteller, Marie Bilodeau. (Some paper airplanes may be thrown.) Derek Künsken, Chair of CAN-CON, supported the event by saying: “This will be fun. I like writers.”
