emerge 2013 Launching October 17th, 2013
Vancouver, BC–September 4, 2013—36 distinct voices experimentwith the written word in emerge 2013, the Writer’s Studio Anthology. Guest edited by JJ Lee, author of “The Measure of a Man: The Story of a Father, a Son, and a Suit,” the student produced anthology blurs the boundaries between genres as contributors push past limits with their writing process in the year-long program at SFU.
Launching with a gala event on October 17th at Simon Fraser University’s downtown campus at Harbour Centre, contributors will read from their work in the anthology starting at 6 pm.
From personal narratives to prose poems to experimental writing, this year’s anthology features nine more writers than in previous years with the addition of the program’s Genre and Young Adult Mentor Group to create one of the most diverse anthologies yet. Writers in the program worked with one of four mentors over the course of the year: Timothy Taylor, Charles Demers, Hiromi Goto and Jen Currin.
Emerge will be on sale at select local bookstores for $21.00 and the ebook version will be available online.
