...and described here on the new Kalamalka Press site. It speaks well to what I was aiming to do in this book.
Big thanks to
Kalamalka Press for the incredible experience. If you check out the
people behind Kalamalka Press you'll see Flight Calls was in mighty good hands. Among the members listed on the About page you'll find John Lent and Chris Clarkson, the editors of this book. The process was a joy and I learned a lot.
I'm grateful to those who play a part in the essays. As you can see in the book description, I called on Gerald Hill in a big way. He delivered. I called on Bernadette Wagner for a particular essay. She delivered. All in all, it was challenging and fun.
Kalamalka Press has recently shifted its focus and there are new initiatives, one of which is the annual John Lent
Poetry-Prose Award. Congratulations to the first recipient, Ariel Gordon. The Mackie Lake
House writers in residence for 2012/13 have also been announced. There's
lots more going on at Kalamalka Press, including an exciting
partnership with Okanagan College's Writing and Publishing Diploma
Program, so have a look.
