Gillian Wigmore on writing into and from the West

Gillian Wigmore“I started to cry, sitting in a third year English class, listening to Smaro Kambourelli introduce the central BC setting of Sheila Watson’s The Double Hook. I tried to hide it, but I hadn’t known I was missing my own landscapes in Canadian literature so badly.” To read more from Gillian Wigmore on this and to find out which books inspired her to “want to write into and from the west”, check out this 49th Shelf article: http://49thshelf.com/Lists/Guest-Contributors/Into-the-Western-Canon-by-Gillian-Wigmore.

Gillian’s latest collection, Dirt of Ages, manifests this inspiration into words and effortlessly captures the essence of Canada’s West in her poetry.
