Publication in The Utne Reader
I’m delighted to say that an excerpt of my essay “Library Haunting” appears in the March/April edition of The Utne Reader. It appeared originally in The New Quarterly, where it won second place in the Edna Staebler Contest for the Personal Essay last year. Which reminds me: Enter soon! Details are available on The New Quarterly’s website; the deadline is March 28th.
The editors at The Utne Reader were wonderful to work with. Brad Zellar’s sensitive and respectful incisions are hardly noticeable. It’s an honour (or should I say honor?) to appear in this publication, which prides itself on selecting the best from the alternative presses.
They also picked up a piece by Laurie Block that originally appeared in Prairie Fire. Hooray for Canada’s “little” magazines.
