In Other Words: New English Writing from Quebec

Edited by Claude Lalumière

In Other Words brings together the best prose writing in Quebec-all short pieces-from the winners and finalists of the last three years of the CBC–QWF Quebec Writing Competition. In 1999, Montreal's CBC-Radio One and the Quebec Writers Federation established the CBC-QWF Short Story Competition. The winning stories are broadcast on CBC Radio's Cinq à Six. The winning stories and finalists from the first three years of the competition were published in Telling Stories: New English Fiction from Quebec, followed three years later by Short Stuff: New English Stories from Quebec. In 2007 the competition was widened to include travel writing, short fiction, life stories, family narratives, humour and personal essays.
