Sterling #5 features 28 original poems, stories and graphic tales from Start Writing members and writers around the world. To celebrate, friends, contributors and workshop veterans are invited to a launch party:
Ben McNally Books
366 Bay Street
Tuesday June 24th
6.30pm – 8.30pm
CNN has called McNally “the most beautiful bookstore in North America.” If you haven’t seen it, now’s your chance to check it out and hear some great new writing.
Elements of this issue are lightly themed around Minneapolis. Representing the Twin Cities are: illustrator Bill Ferenc, who provided the cover art; Pulitzer Prize-nominated author Marya Hornbacher, our first-ever Guest Editor; and a feature interview with Dan Ibarra of Aesthetic Apparatus, a commercial art and printmaking studio.
The event is free to attend; journals will be available for purchase with a special bonus goodie: a limited edition four button pack, designed by Bill Ferenc, calling out elements of his front and back cover art. RSVP below; if you can’t make it, pre-order your copy at SterlingMag.ca.
