We're proud to announce that our faculty member Sarah Leavitt is a finalist for the 2020 Doug Wright Award for Best Canadian Comic! Her new graphic novel 𝐴𝑔𝑛𝑒𝑠𝑠, 𝑀𝑢𝑟𝑑𝑒𝑟𝑒𝑠𝑠 is inspired by the legend of Agnus McVee, a 19th century roadhouse owner in B.C. The legend, which hasn't been substantiated by historians, suggests that McVee murdered several gold miners and sex workers who stayed at her inn. Leavitt's comic imagines Agnes being raised by her evil grandmother in Scotland, making her way to London and then to B.C., leaving a trail of bodies along the way. @sarah_leav @doug_wright_awards
Congratulations to our MFA alumna Christy-Ann Conlin, she's a finalist for the Danuta Gleed Literary award for her book 𝑊𝑎𝑡𝑒𝑟𝑚𝑎𝑟𝑘!

The award is made possible through a generous donation from John Gleed, in memory of his late wife, and is administered by The Writers’ Union of Canada. @christy.ann.conlin @ubc_arts

During these uncertain times we need a form of escape and the Creative Writing Program has exactly what you’re looking for! The 34th Annual Brave New Play Rites Festival has moved online, live readings are being broadcasted on Saturdays at 1pm PST for the next five weeks. You can access BNPR’s YouTube channel through this link: https://bit.ly/2wrVyEs The BPNR Festival kicked off last Saturday with live readings of 𝑀𝑜𝑛𝑒𝑦𝑏𝑎𝑔𝑠 by BFA playwright Vanessa Hill and 𝑇ℎ𝑒 𝐷𝑒𝑎𝑙 by MFA playwright Emma Leck.

We are proud to announce that our MFA Alumna Michelle Good is releasing her novel 𝐹𝑖𝑣𝑒 𝐿𝑖𝑡𝑡𝑙𝑒 𝐼𝑛𝑑𝑖𝑎𝑛𝑠 on April 14 with HarperCollins Canada! Michelle was the winner of our 2018 HarperCollins UBC prize for Best New Fiction and earned her MFA in Creative Writing while practising law. Margaret Atwood, author of 𝑇ℎ𝑒 𝐻𝑎𝑛𝑑𝑚𝑎𝑖𝑑’𝑠 𝑇𝑎𝑙𝑒 is anticipating the release of 𝐹𝑖𝑣𝑒 𝐿𝑖𝑡𝑡𝑙𝑒 𝐼𝑛𝑑𝑖𝑎𝑛𝑠 and will read it with “great interest”. 𝐹𝑖𝑣𝑒 𝐿𝑖𝑡𝑡𝑙𝑒 𝐼𝑛𝑑𝑖𝑎𝑛𝑠 is a story about five children who went through residential schools and after their release are “striving to find a place of safety and belonging in a world that doesn’t want them.” Similar to 𝑇ℎ𝑒 𝐻𝑎𝑛𝑑𝑚𝑎𝑖𝑑’𝑠 𝑇𝑎𝑙𝑒, the plot discusses child stealing, but this story is based on real child stealing that occurred in Canada, providing an accurate depiction of what happened to indigenous people during this time. Michelle Good's 𝐹𝑖𝑣𝑒 𝐿𝑖𝑡𝑡𝑙𝑒 𝐼𝑛𝑑𝑖𝑎𝑛𝑠 will be available here on April 14th: bit.ly/2JMy3ZQ @harpercollinsca @therealmargaretatwood @universityofbc @ubc_arts

Exciting news! #UBC Creative Writing lecturer Sarah Leavitt (@sarah_leav) is launching her stunning graphic novel, "Agnes, Murderess" on Sept 26 (7-10pm) at the Lost & Found Cafe in Vancouver. Open to all. "Agnes, Murderess" is inspired by the bloody legend of Agnes McVee, a roadhouse owner, madam and serial killer in the Cariboo region of British Columbia in the late 19th-century. Fascinated by this legend — which originated in a 1970s guide to buried treasure in B.C., and has never been verified — Sarah has imagined an entirely new story for the mysterious Agnes.
