Finding the Words by Jared Bland (59)

This is a wonderful series of articles by Canadian writers about the writing life.

In Finding the Words, thirty-one well-known writers share their deeply personal discoveries about writing. The stories are surprising and inspiring. These pieces explore home, exile, and the search for a place to belong.

I loved the book because I too have my stories of writing being a writer in Canada.  Writing is a lot easier, given the Canadian seasons and the need to hibernate in the winter.  I absolutely love reading and writing during the winter. And it is one of my most productive times.

This is a book that all aspiring writers and writers will absolutely love.

The book is written by some of the most well-known and successful Canadian writers. Here is a showcase of the authors who have written articles in this book: Alice Munro, Diana Athill, Tash Aw, David Bezmozgis, Joseph Boyden, David Charindy, Denise Chong, Karen Connelly, Alain De Botton, Emma Donoghue, Gord Downie, Marina Endicott, Stacey May Fowles, Rawl Hage, Elizabeth Hay, Steven Heighton, Lee Henderson, Guy Gavriel Kay, Mark Kingwell, Martha Huwee Kumsa, Annabel Lyon, Linden MacIntyre, Pasha Malla, Lisa Moore, Stephanie Nolen, Heather O’Neill, Richard oplak, Mowz Surani, Miguel Syjuco, Madeleine Thien, and Michael Winter.
