Edited by Katherine Bitney and Andris Taskans

About the Book
A/Cross Sections: New Manitoba Writing is a generous overview and thorough exploration of a quarter century of Manitoba writing. The work offers a rich assortment of stories, poems, memoirs, excerpts from journal entries, novels and plays, essays, anecdotes and fables, with occasional forays into drama, fantasy, horror, humour, journalism, travel and young adult writing. This book is truly a representative cross section of writerly creativity in Manitoba. It has been lovingly edited and introduced by Katherine Bitney and Andris Taskans. This anthology is a celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Manitoba Writers’ Guild. It includes work by 92 contributors, many of whom are regarded as the finest Manitoba writers of the past three decades: David Bergen, Sandra Birdsell, Di Brandt, Marvin Francis, Patrick Friesen, Linda Holeman, Catherine Hunter, Sylvia Legris, Jake MacDonald, Sheldon Oberman, Carol Shields, Margaret Sweatman, Miriam Toews, Armin Wiebe and many more.
