PEI Writers’ Guild Open Mic Series featuring Chuck Bowie


Chuck Bowie will be the featured reader at the PEI Writers’ Guild open mic on Thursday, January 11 at 7 p.m. at Receiver Coffee Co., 128 Richmond St., in Charlottetown.

All are welcome to this free event. The first ten writers to sign up may read from their work – poetry or prose – for 3 to 5 minutes. Following a short break to enjoy some of Receiver Coffee’s delicious offerings, Chuck will read.

Chuck Bowie graduated from the University of New Brunswick in Canada with a Bachelor Degree in Science. Originally from Miramichi, he continues to live on the East Coast of Canada. Growing up as an air force brat, his writing is influenced by the study of human nature and how people behave, habits he picked up as his family moved nineteen times in his first twenty one years. Chuck loves food, wine, music and travel and all play a role in his work.

His writing often draws upon elements of these experiences to round out his characters and plot lines. Chuck is involved in the world of music, supporting local musicians, occasionally playing with them and always celebrating their successes. Because he enjoys venting as much as the next fellow, Chuck will at times share his thoughts with a brief essay or blog, some of which can be found on his website.

He is working with his publisher to edit the fourth novel, entitled The Body On The Underwater Road, part of the suspense-thriller series Donovan: Thief For Hire. His newest published work is entitled Steal It All, and follows the books Three Wrongs and AMACAT.

The PEI Writers’ Guild Open Mic Series will continue to run on the second Thursday of each month.
