Each summer, The Banff Centre's Literary Journalism program takes in eight senior journalists and writers and charges them with a simple, if daunting task: Write about something you really care about. In this installment of the Banff Centre Press's literary journalism series, participants push boundaries and arrive at some of their most passionate work.
"Sidles up to the nuclear core of emotion that journalists usually keep contained ... here, the 'I' has muscled to the foreground, and the writing is more interestingly shaded."--Susan Grimbly, The Globe and Mail. "As a journalist, I found the creative stretch of these stories inspiring. To answer the book's title, Why are you telling me this? Because we can find something of ourselves in these stories." --Sharon Crawford, freelance writer and member of PWAC.
