Issue 68

Publication: The Prairie Journal

Since 1983, Prairie Journal has been the best little magazine in the West, with a prairie perspective on Canadian literature. Contains reviews, interviews, profiles, special anthology issues, as well as all the genres you have come to expect in a first-class publication. Prairie Journal has received Finalist and Honourable Mentions from the National Magazine Awards.

Issue 68 in memory of Ruth Kelly has fiction from a manuscript called CANAL WATCH, by Ken Rivard. Bertrand Bickersteth, who teaches at Olds College, is the editor of an anthology of black literature from Alberta. Paul R. Bond, who lives and writes in Innisfail, is writing a novel and a book of short fiction. Case Caufield played and recorded music with Alberta alterative rock bands. He is at work on a film script and a poetry collection.

The Prairie Journal: A Magazine of Canadian Literature has participated in Alberta Arts and Cultural Days since 2007. Our annual Alberta Muse issue was inspired by Alberta Magazine Month: October. Issue 50 was in memory of Amber Bowerman. Issue 56 was in memory of Robert Kroetsch. Paul William Zits contributed an excerpt from his Massacre Street. Issue 58 featured “A Voice in the Wilderness”, by Anne Metikosh, on Stephan G. Stephansson, a famous Icelandic-Albertan poet.

Stroll through our covers, many by mega-talented Edmonton artist Caitlin Crawshaw.

In addition to print, we publish original work online: long poems, interviews, fiction, reviews, and drama. Check out: Macbeth the After Party, by Deanna Smid, a playwright.
