Current Issue: Volume I

Welcome to the Capital City Press Anthology, an online literary journal featuring local writers.

Letter From the Editor

Welcome to Volume One of the Capital City Press Anthology. This has been a labour of love for all of us involved, and I am so pleased to finally bring this project to life. Edmonton has a strong and vibrant writing community, which is represented in the works I am proud to introduce here. Launching our call for submissions in the midst of a pandemic was not exactly what any of us had planned, but the response was overwhelming, and the team was hard-pressed to choose just a few. The final collection included in this Anthology reflects the wide variety of experiences, interests, concerns, and joys that make up the map of Edmonton.

I wanted to take a moment to thank the editorial team who helped bring this Anthology together: Diego Ibarra, Courtney Loberg, Danielle Deschamps, Jasmine-Grace Nacu, Tiana Luck, Cassey Stewart, Robin Wells, Zoe Glassman, Roxanne Skoreyko, Jennifer Schell, Diana Gaviria, Anna Wallace, Christine Belley, Michael Yip, and Rebecca Shepherd. And a special thank you to the Capital City Press Team: Trisia Eddy, Charles Crittenden, Bryce Crittenden, Carol Ma, Beth Kilfoy, and Erin Carter.

I hope you enjoy this collection as much as I do and look forward to bringing you more local writing in the near future.

~ Katherine Gibson, on behalf of the Capital City Press Team.
