The fall 2017 issue features writing about Edmonton for Canada’s 150th birthday
As senior editor at Eighteen Bridges, one of Canada’s top magazines for narrative journalism, I have the privilege of reading, working with, and helping to publish the writing of incredible authors. (Sometimes I even get to appear along side them, as the magazine’s music columnist.)
The fall 2017 issue was extra special. A collaboration with the Edmonton Community Foundation, it enlisted talented essayists who bring unique perspectives on Edmonton’s past, present and future. The result is a rich and varied anthology that runs the gamut of what makes Alberta’s capital a fascinating, complicated and, on the whole, amazing place to be.
I’d love for you to buy a copy to see it all for yourself – or better yet, subscribe! To help make my case, here’s a sampling of the awesome stories you can expect from this issue and those to come:
- Edmonton Time: Musician Rollie Pemberton on what it means to be an Edmonton artist – even when you live in Montreal
- Canada, You’re Like My Favourite One-Day Uncle and I Love You: Richard Van Camp’s conflicted love letter to the country
- City of Tastemakers: Inside Edmonton’s Culinary Boom: Edmonton’s unlikely rise to national foodie stardom
