A few months ago The Independent launched it’s online literary & arts journal, titled “Landwash.” They’ve launched two issues so far and I was happy to have stories featured in both.
“Landwash” is a collection of stories, poetry, photography, art, and commentary on contemporary Newfoundland and Labrador arts and culture, filtered through the unique post-Confederation revolutionary lens of The Independent.
My contribution to Issue #1 is “Sleigh Bells,” a short story I wrote a couple of years ago (and another Christmas-themed one!) based on stories I heard growing up in Bay D’Espoir.
“Undercurrents,” my contribution to Issue #2, is also based on people I knew growing up, but is also a reflection on industry and development and its affect on small town Newfoundland.
I should have a story in Issue #3 as well. Keep an eye out for it at www.theindependent.ca!
