Bronwyn Fischer's THE RED FERN POEM has sold to Abby Muller at Algonquin and Sarah Jackson at Random House Canada in a two-book deal.
Pitched as a queer CONVERSATIONS WITH FRIENDS or a modern THE PRICE OF SALT, this debut fiction follows a first-year university student and an older woman whose unexpected interest in her sparks an all-consuming and insidious love affair. THE RED FERN POEM explores youthful self-consciousness, self-delusion, and self-definition.
"The exquisite pain of first love written in gorgeous, luminescent prose – Bronwyn Fischer writes beyond her 25 years and takes you straight into the human heart to a place none have ventured before," said The Rights Factory agent and CEO Sam Hiyate.
THE RED FERN POEM is scheduled for publication in spring 2023.
