Keir Lowther to read
Keir Lowther will be the featured reader at the PEI Writers’ Guild Open Mic on March 15, at 7 pm at Receiver Coffee Co., 128 Richmond St in Charlottetown.
Keir is a graduate of the Humber School for Writers, and was awarded an apprenticeship by the Writers’ Federation of Nova Scotia.
Keir has received awards including from the Maritime Writing Competition, the Atlantic Writing Competition and the Island Literary Awards. Keir’s short story, “Dirty Bird,” was shortlisted for the CBC Literary Awards (2007), and became the foundation for a novel of the same name which won the 2013 Margaret and John Savage First Novel Award at the Atlantic Book Awards.
He lives with his wife, daughter, son and dog in Prince Edward Island.
All are welcome to this free event. The first ten writers to sign up may read from their work—poetry or prose—for up to 5 minutes. Following a short break, Keir will read. The PEI Writers’ Guild Open Mic Series will continue to run on the second Thursday of each month.
