In this exciting new anthology from Oolichan Books, editors Kim Clark and Dawn Marie Kresan comb the Canadian landscape for its redheaded writers. Only 2% of the world's population is born with red locks, and Canadian Ginger explores what it means to be red in the head. Whether it is a poet, a playwright or a prose writer in between, each has a particular take on the myths and stereotypes of having red hair. The anthology includes established and emerging writers, from nonfiction by Penn Kamp to a short play by Jordan Watkins, from poetry and prose by Bruce Meyer to nonfiction by Christine Lowther.
Kim Clark is an author, poet and playwright. She was a finalist in Theatre BC's Playwrights Competition and her darkly comic novel arrives in 2017 via Caitlin Press. Dawn Marie Kresan's books include Muse (Tightrope Books 2013), and Derelict (Bilbioasis, forthcoming). She lives in Kingsville, Ontario, with her husband and their daughter.
