The (Not So) Nice Italian Girls & Friends ...

The (Not So) Nice Italian Girls and Friends were formed in the summer of 2009. It was the brainchild of myself and a friend, Giovanna Riccio the poet, who wanted to create a forum for new and established writers in the Italo-Canadian community. We wanted to offer a fresh and challenging perspective - poetry and short fiction that might offer an alternative to the usual images in the media; hence, the tongue and cheek reference to being "not so nice".

We have created a new blog to promote the events: notsoniceitaliangirls.blogspot.com. We will list upcoming readings and, hopefully, pics from each event as well as bios and links to the writers' websites and blogs. And we look forward to seeing you tonight!
