Please excuse the long email, but the holidays are just around the corner and we really wanted to let you know why Geist makes the perfect gift for the writers in your life.
Here’s what Geist has to offer to the writers in your life:
Findings: excerpts of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, photography and artwork from book publishers, zines, webzines, blogs, self-publishers and other more arcane sources from every corner of the country.
Reviews of what’s of special interest to the Geist editorial board, from literary and cultural publishers.
Fiction: Geist publishes a handful of short, long, serious, funny, outrageous and subtle fiction pieces in each issue from emerging and established writers from all over the country.
Dispatches: a form of creative non-fiction that we have been perfecting for more than twenty years, at the heart of which is the aim to get at the nature of writing about the world and the county we inhabit.
Columns: lengthy examples of throughly considered and well argued opinion pieces from experienced writers who grapple with mainstream and off-beat cultural and literary.
Poetry: each issue features a handful of poems with a strong focus on lyrical narrative; we are committed to publishing new and established poets working in the narrative verse genre.
The best from award-winning novelists, poets, short story writers and essayists, including Alberto Manguel, Nicole Brossard, David Albahari, Miriam Toews, Michael Turner, Sheila Heti, Evelyn Lau, Stephen Henighan, Ivan E. Coyote, Annabel Lyon and many more from all over Canada and the world.
Notices of writing contests, readings and literary events and Geist workshop announcements, delivered via the Geist newsletter, which features all this and the best from geist.com.
In short, Geist offers the writers in your life a look at a broad range of writing being published in Canada, insight into the preferences of the Geist editorial board and, most importantly, inspiration for delving into their own writing.
