Jane Urquhart

One thought on “Jane Urquhart

  1. Good afternoon —

    I’m hoping to reach Jane Urquhart (the Canadian novelist!). I’m a professor in the English Department at MacEwan University (Edmonton, Alberta) and the organizer of our first annual Monica Miller Memorial Lecture and Master Class. We would like to invite Ms. Urquhart to be our inaugural lecturer. The goal of both lecture and master class is “to amplify and draw attention to women’s voices in and through literature and creative writing, and to provide a model of female accomplishment and examples and discussion of practice to aspiring creative writers.” We are able to offer an honorarium of $3000 CDN as well as paying for travel and accommodation. The scheduled date of the event (close-to-but-not-quite-finalized) is Feb. 3-4, 2022.

    Monica Miller was a broadcaster who worked in independent radio in Edmonton; the annual lecture and master class will be funded by a bequest from Ms. Miller’s family. Jane Urquhart was one of her favourite authors.

    If you could forward this message I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks very much for your time.
