Writing the Land

See the land around us with new eyes, as some of Alberta’s finest poets explore the magnificent and diverse landscape of our province, and how we interact with it. From the tar sands in the north, to the towering Rockies, to the grasslands of the south – not to mention the rich farmland, prairies, boreal forests, coulees and wandering rivers in-between – this land and its resources have shaped and continue to influence the history, culture, and economy of Alberta.

Writing the Land includes new work by Tom Wayman, Diane Buchanan, John Bishop Ballem, Jenna Butler, Jeananne Kathol Kirwin and many others. Collected in celebration of the theme chosen for the 2007 Conference and AGM of the Writers Guild of Alberta, these poems will lodge inside your soul.
