Literary Arts Reading List

Banff Centre's Literary Arts residencies proudly feature faculty writing across genres, each bringing new perspectives on how language can provoke, excite, complicate, and heal.

"My Fall-Winter 2022/23 Reading List consists of volumes from each of our upcoming faculty, from the Emerging Writers Residency focusing on YA and Children’s books (October 2022) through to our Winter Writers Residency (January 2023). It's a preview of the faculty and mentors that writers will be working with on-campus to develop their manuscripts and writing projects.

Take this time to dive into some exceptional novels, poetry, Young Adult and Children's books; each of these titles can be ordered from your local bookstore, or online. I hope this list will surprise and entangle as you explore what Banff Centre has in store!" - Derek Beaulieu, Director of Literary Arts
