Main Description
For 35 years the University of British Columbia's Creative Writing program has enjoyed a reputation as a hotbed of literary talent, consistently attracting some of the country's most promising authors. The 15 stories gathered between these covers represent some of the best work of its most recent graduates. Under the tutelage of faculty members Linda Svendsen, George McWhirter, Jerry Newman, Keith Maillard and others, these award-winning writers have placed impressive first books with prestigious Canadian and American publishers. We celebrate their achievement with this anniversary anthology, confident it is a harbinger of great works to come.Contributors include Zsuzsi Gartner, Eden Robinson, Anne Fleming, Terence Young, Murray Logan, Annabel Lyon, Debbie Howlett, Alison Acheson, Adam Lewis Schroeder, Andrew Gray, Aislinn Hunter, Madeleine Thien, Rick Maddocks, Kelli Deeth and Nancy Lee.
