The Banff Centre Press

The Banff Centre Press is uniquely positioned to publish the great wealth and diversity of content written at and commissioned by The Banff Centre, the world's largest arts and creativity incubator.

The first series of digital stories published by the Banff Centre Press. These stories showcase diverse talent and ideas from emerging and established writers, who have written, taught, presented, or participated in residencies at The Banff Centre. And for our first series, these stories are linked by the concept of “hacking” — almost a retro term in the digital age of increasing open access. Our authors interpreted hacking in many ways: as sleuth—like programming, as activism, as taking a crack at a career—or being an old hand at a profession—and ingenious problem-solving. Our first story is available now, for free. Read it now
