The Malahat Review invites writers who identify as First Nations, Métis and Inuit to submit their unpublished work to an upcoming issue on contemporary Indigenous writing in Canada.
To be published in January 2017, Indigenous Perspectives will celebrate the aesthetics, concerns, contributions, and achievements of Indigenous authors living in or from “Canada,” recognizing their crucial role in providing a truly complete picture of what it is like to be alive in North America in the past, future, and especially today.
The issue is being guest-edited by Philip Kevin Paul (poetry), Richard Van Camp (fiction), and Leanne Betasamosake Simpson (creative nonfiction).
Each editor will be interviewed by Troy Sebastian. For his interview with Richard Van Camp, click here. For his interview with Leanne Betasamosake Simpson, click here. Interview with Philip Kevin Paul will be posted in early August.
Full submission details available on our website (deadline August 15).
