Writing the Everyday - Women's Textual Communities in Atlantic Canada by Danielle Fuller
hard cover, new condition, 298 pages
The first book to focus on contemporary women's writing from Atlantic Canada and the communities of writers, readers, and publishers that support it.
In Writing the Everyday - Women's Textual Communities in Atlantic Canada Danielle Fuller draws on original interviews with Atlantic Canadian women writers from diverse backgrounds, as well as editors and publishers, to explore how and why communities form around texts that record women's everyday realities, histories, and traditions.
The writers surveyed include "People's Poet" Maxine Tynes, Governor General's Literacy Award Winner Joan Clark, best selling author Bernice Morgan, Helen Porter, Mi'kmag Elder Rita Joe, and Sheree Finch. Their work, whether prose writing or poetry performances, combines oral storytelling, family history, and other aspects of local culture and popular literary genres.
