New Issue of The Nashwaak Review Now Available

Published:

The new issue of The Nashwaak Review is now available.

 

Its editor Professor Stewart Donovan is pleased to have collaborated with the Provincial Archives once more.

 

“This is the third time in the 25-year life of our magazine that we have collaborated with the Archives,” said Donovan, noting also how relevant and contemporary the theme of migrants to New Brunswick and Canada is at this time.

 

“Our memories tend to be short term, and most of us need to be reminded that we came to the ‘New World’ as migrants in search of a better life.”

 

Besides poetry and prose on this theme, Donovan is also pleased to have the award-winning poet George Elliot Clarke in the magazine again. Clarke, a Governor General’s award winner was also a Canadian Poet Laureate and the former Poet Laureate of Toronto as well. George’s subject matter of course often concerns his African-Canadian roots and heritage. 

 

STU professor Trevor Sawler has a moving review tribute to the New Brunswick writer, and STU alumnus, the late Ray Fraser (to whom the issue is also dedicated).

 

Professor Donovan also said that this issue of the Nashwaak also contains the usual high standard of poetry, short stories, travel pieces and reviews that the magazine is known for across the country and internationally.
