Trevor Carolan, editor of Making Waves: Reading BC and Pacific Northwest Literature
Making Waves offers a mosaic of fresh approaches toward shaping a new "literacy of place," a more coherent understanding of BC and Pacific Northwest literature in the 21st century. The fifteen essays by established and newer voices examine creation myths among West Coast literary institutions, gender roles and ethnicity in the region's expanding literary community, critical challenges to nationalist and ecologial traditions, as well as pay homage to some of our celebrated elders. Contributions by: Carolyn Zonailo, George McWhirter, Judith Copithorne, Susan McCaslin, Hilary Turner, Joseph Blake, Michael Barnholden, Colin James Sanders, Mike Doyle, Frances Cabahug, Paul Falardeau, Chelsea Thornton, Martin Van Woudenberg, Ron Dart, Trevor Carolan
