#143 – James McClure

James McClure is an award-winning writer, journalist, scholar and undergraduate instructor. In 2018, James’ newest play, Glass Closets, was chosen to be workshopped at Mount Allison University as part of the 2018 Playwrights’ Colony hosted by the Playwrights Atlantic Resource Centre. ‘Glass Closets’ is his second Fundy Fringe Festival production. In 2017, he wrote and directed ‘Faking It,’ a coming-of-age comedy that was also one of three winners in the Saint John Theatre Company’s playwrighting competition ‘Script Happens.’

James also writes poems, short stories and novels. In 2018, his unpublished YA novel Playing like a Girl was the first runner-up for the David Adams Richards Prize awarded by the Writers Federation of New Brunswick. Judge Michelle Butler Hallett praised the manuscript as “polished YA fiction” and noted that “the first-person narration is especially skillful.”

James currently works as the editor of Civilized.life – a cannabis culture and lifestyle website. Previously, he pursued a doctoral degree in English at the University of Ottawa, specializing in Shakespearean drama.
