Unfortunately for Brockton Writers Series, the Toronto International Film Festival has stolen one of our September guests, Katie Boland, who is also an actor. (This is quite good news for Katie, however – congratulations!) We look forward to hosting her in January.
In her place, we’ve added Christine Miscione, whose first book is still warm from the printers and whose bio is below. And stay tuned: this Wednesday, the first of our four September writers, Catherine Hernandez, will be dropping by with a guest post for the BWS blog.
Christine Miscione has an MA in English Literature from Queen’s University. Her work has appeared in various Canadian publications, such as Exile: The Literary Quarterly, This Magazine, and The Puritan. In 2011, she was the recipient of the Hamilton Arts Award for Best Emerging Writer, and in 2012, her story “Skin, Just” won first place in the Gloria Vanderbilt/Exile Editions CVC Short Fiction Contest (emerging writer category). Her debut short story collection, Auxiliary Skins, will be released in September 2013 through Exile Editions. Find her at http://christinemiscione.wordpress.com.
