“The Fiction Makes Us Real”: A Celebration of Canadian Literature with poet, writer and critic Nicole Markotić


The Yorkshire Network for Canadian Studies in collaboration with the Lifelong Learning Centre at the University of Leeds are delighted to announce the forthcoming visit to the UK of the Canadian poet, fiction writer and literary critic Nicole Markotić (University of Windsor, Canada).


Nicole is the author of the poetry books connect the dots, Minotaurs & Other Alphabets, Bent at the Spine, and the chapbooks widows & orphans, more excess (which won the bpNichol Chapbook Award), he & [he], and tracking the game. Her fiction includes Yellow Pages, Scrapbook of My Years as a Zealot, and short stories in various literary journals. Her interests include representations of disability, feminist critical and body theory, and twentieth-century Canadian and North American literature and poetics.

Do join us for an evening of entertainment and literary delight at the Lifelong Learning Centre on Canada Day, 1st July 2015, 6-8 pm. Nicole will take us on a whirlwind tour of Canadian literature and treat us to readings of her own work and some other Canadian favourites.
