Join us for the launch of our December 2016 issue, 39.4 "This Body's Map", edited by Chelene Knight. There will be readings by Jen Sookfong Lee, Chantal Gibson, Beni Xiao, and Nefertiti, as well as an artist talk by cover artist Samantha deVries-Hofman. Entry by donation.
On Friday August 19, Room celebrated several exciting new ventures including a reading to announce our forthcoming fortieth anniversary anthology (to be published March 2017 and launched at the first ever Growing Room: A Feminist Literary Festival in Vancouver). The rooftop was stellar, the readings were amazing, and the ambiance was one of a kind. As the sun began to set, the warm air carried these beauiful voices across the roof and over the city. This was a spectacular evening.
Congratulations to the winners of Room's 2010 Fiction, Poetry, and Creative Non-Fiction Contest!
Our sincere thanks to everyone who submitted their work. Look for first and second place winners in issue 34.1, coming to newsstands in late winter.
