CFP: Bronwen Wallace: Essays on Her Work (deadline: 1 April 2019)

2019 marks the 30th anniversary of the death of Bronwen Wallace (1945-1989), a significant Canadian poet, prose-writer, and activist. Though her life began and ended in Kingston, Ontario, her influence was felt across the country. Her five collections of poetry, Marrying into the Family (1980), Signs of the Former Tenant (1983), Common Magic (1985), The Stubborn Particulars of Grace (1987), and Keep That Candle Burning Bright and Other Poems (1990),  her posthumously published short story collection People You’d Trust Your Life To (1990), her correspondence, her essays from the KingstonWhig-Standard gathered in Arguments With the World (1992), the documentary films she made in collaboration with Chris Whynot, and the RBC Bronwen Wallace Award for Emerging Writers established in her memory continue to inspire writers and readers. We invite articles up to 5000 words on all aspects of her work, her poetry, her prose, her activism, her influences and enduring impact to be considered for Bronwen Wallace: Essays on Her Work forthcoming from Guernica Editions. In an interview given just months before her death, Wallace said, “If we are going to live with wholeness or integrity in the world, we have to pay attention to the particulars and politics of where we are.”  We encourage contributors to consider the many ways Wallace paid attention and invited us to do the same. Please send articles to wanda.campbell@acadiau.ca by April 1, 2019.
