My fixation on Alberta writers comes with good reason. I’m on the board for the Writers’ Guild of Alberta yo! Their mission is to connect, encourage, inspire, promote and support Alberta writers and their writing, so it would be a down right travesty if I didn’t feature them on one of my radio segments this summer. So yesterday, I spoke about the three nominees for the George Bugnet Alberta Literary Award, click here to listen to it.

Although the ceremony already happened in June (remember I blogged about it before?), I thought it was important to revisit the three nominees because they represent some of the finest fiction that come out of this province in 2015. Fishbowl by Bradley Somer won, but Tracey Lindberg’s Birdie and Richard Van Camp’s Night Moves were all worthy opponents, so no matter which of the three you pick up, you’re guaranteed to enjoy it.
