Literary Arts Reading List

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

"My 2021 Summer Reading List consists of volumes from each of our upcoming faculty, from the Emerging Writers Online Intensive (August 2021) through to Spring Writers Retreat (March 2022). It's a preview of the faculty and mentors that writers will be working with online and (soon!) on-campus.

Summer is a great chance to delve into novels, poetry, research, and children's books; I hope this list will surprise and entangle as you explore what Banff Centre has in store!" ~ Derek Beaulieu, Director of Literary Arts
