Malahat Review invitation(s)

Recently Malahat invited me to participate in an online interview with Cody Klippenstein, a former creative writing student at UVic now going for an MFA in New York. The interview just went up on Malahat Lite, the magazine’s online presence. Also included is a rare photo of me at 12, when I was at school in England — an experience that generated great material for The English Stories (Biblioasis 2009), my collection of linked stories that preceded Red Girl Rat Boy. Here’s the link to the review.

Malahat has also invited me to judge the fiction component of their autumn writing competition. I’m looking forward to doing that in December 2014.
