CWILA Links: The Count, open letters, and shortlists!

It’s a huge week for CWILA! We’ve just released The Count. Check out the infographic, Erin Wunker’s introduction that explores the CWILA effect, and Judith Scholes’ explanation of the methods and results. Give it all a read and help spread the word.

As for other literary links to check out this week:

Mira Jacobs gave a speech about race to the publishing industry and no one heard her.

The Giller Prize Shortlist was announced this week! And… The Governor General’s Award Shortlists were announced too!

Erin Wunker responds to Rex Murphy’s dismissal of rape culture and contemporary university studies.

In another open letter, Brian Kim Stefans responds to the New Yorker’s Kenny Goldsmith profile.

Amirah El-Safty interviews poet Rupi Kaur about her writing and online poetic presence.

CWILA interviewed the awe-inspiring Lee Maracle.

Have you read the latest print issue of Room? It’s really good. Also, Room interviewed writer and editor Kathryn Mockler about The Rusty Toque and submitting to literary magazines.

And speaking of submissions, The Offing is looking for work from trans and genderqueer authors!

Did I miss something? I’m open to suggestions! Feel free to let me know what you’re reading and I’ll try to include it in our next dispatch. Email links to:
