Join SFU Creative Writing to hear readings from emerge 2020: the annual anthology from the students of The Writer’s Studio program at Simon Fraser University. You’ll receive a tantalizing taste of work from those emerging authors who have participated in the illustrious program this year, and discover new voices in British Columbia’s writing community, from novelists to poets to essayists. For aspiring authors, hear from writers who have turned a dream of creating into a reality with the help of professional mentors. Join this immersive celebration of new talent!

Presented in collaboration with SFU Creative Writing.




This special 20th-anniversary anthology invites you to journey outside yourself: float in a capsized rowboat, downward-dog through a yoga studio adapting to COVID-19, reflect on the legacy of residential schools, find purpose on the Camino de Santiago, and make peace with your raccoon neighbours. These are stories of ego, loss, birth, renewal—the salient issues of our time.

In emerge 20, writers of fiction, narrative non-fiction, speculative fiction, young adult fiction, poetry and lyric prose isolate the everyday tales of human resilience and solidarity that will leave you wanting more from these emerging writers.

You can purchase emerge 20 through Hager Books in Vancouver or through Amazon.
