Further excitement

My new issue of The New Quarterly has finally arrived! Honestly, never has there ever been an issue of a lit. journal I've so wanted to devour-- Elizabeth Hay interviewed, Rebecca Rosenblum on Sassy, even Kim Jernigan's Editor's Letter is delightful. And speaking of Rosenblums, this particular one has been nominated for a National Magazine Award for her story "Linh Lai" (published in TNQ). I was also excited to see my favourite poet Jennica Harper up for a poetry award. Further excitement: Margaret Atwood's Adopt a Word to Create a Story story has been revealed. It's called "Persiflage in the Library" and it's very cute (read it here).
