Overview

Needless to say, moments like now, when the hurdles to becoming a respected author are at their lowest. When the only hurdles to being published are the quality of your writing and your patience to deal with certain less and less important gatekeepers. Moments in history like this, must be acknowledged and celebrated. That's what this anthology is: It's a celebration. A moment to cry out, “Look how many of us have a voice! There are stories, and poetry in this country that are about people like me! I am not alone!”

Reviews

Changing the Face of Canadian Literature comes close to accomplishing what the title proclaims. Swan acknowledges the extensive library of anthologies that have sought – more or less effectively – to bring equity to the publishing scene. This one authentically captures a literary moment that is alive and exciting, a moment that will, with ongoing vigilance, continue evolving in ever more inclusive directions. "
