While the West Kootenay’s black bears spent the fall harvesting salmon, insects and your neighbour’s garbage, Selkirk College students and faculty at the Black Bear Review were hard at work foraging for literary and artistic submissions for its latest issue: Winter Paws.

I'm so pleased to be involved with the Black Bear Review. A lot of people did a lot of great work to bring this recent issue together. Happy reading!!!

Our Winter Issue is Live!

Winter Paws: Vol. 2, Issue 1.

While the West Kootenay’s black bears spent the fall harvesting salmon, insects and your neighbour’s gar...bage, the Black Bear Review has been hard at work gathering literary and artistic sustenance to get you through the winter. This issue will lead you through cardboard doors to a forest of burning paper dolls, it’ll dump you in the river, gasping for breath, and it’ll serenade you with the golden sounds of a dead man’s trumpet. Winter Paws: Vol. 2, Issue 1, is a veritable feast of varied delicacies that we hope you will savour from your respective dens.

Selkirk College and Spokane’s Eastern Washington University (EWU) united writers of the regions for “A Stone’s Throw Writing Symposium,” where local writers participated in workshops lead by EWU Creative Writing Masters of Fine Arts students and was followed by an evening social and reading by EWU’s faculty and graduate students.

Thank you to the organizers, Almeda Glenn Miller and Leesa Dean, creative writing faculty at Selkirk College (and Black Bear Review Faculty advisers), for an amazing day of writing and listening!

Madeleine Morley examines the print versus digital content battle over the last decade and discovers that digital and print actually compliment each other in a co-dependent relationship. Amid the sweeping statements that print is dead, Morley offers a deeply-reported, thoughtful counterpoint.
