Is CanLit Still CanLit if it is Genre Fiction?

Publication: WestWord

Historically, CanLit has been described as Canadian literature produced by Canadian writers (living anywhere in the world) that has a cultural impact on Canadians…. What is often dismissed by the CanLit canon is genre fiction like romance, science fiction, crime fiction and graphic novels,” writes Rayanne Haines in her article, “Is CanLit Still CanLit if it is Genre Fiction?” In her piece, Haines talks with fellow authors S.G. Wong, Wayne Arthurson and Danielle Metcalfe-Chenail about the differences between CanLit and genre writing and the challenges writers face working in both.
