Interview with TNQ

TanabataThe New Quarterly interviewed me a while back about my Edna Staebler Personal Essay Contest runner up essay Liquefaction. It was more than a little nerve racking to be on the other side of the questions. You can read it here. Liquefaction was published in Issue 124: Close Encounters of a Complicated Kind.

“The New Quarterly is a magazine of Canadian fiction, poetry, and conversation, primarily about the writer’s craft. Our mandate is to nurture emerging writers by publishing and promoting their work alongside that of well-established writers we admire, and to provide an editorial context in which both can be read. We try to balance serious consideration of matters literary with playfulness and invention. The tone is generally celebratory.  Writers we’ve published were included in the most recent shortlists of The Giller, Griffin Poetry Prize, Commonwealth Writers’ Prize, & the Writers Trust Fiction Prize.”
