Anthology 2024:

Hot off the press is the next anthology of short stories and poetry by the Saskatoon Writers’ Club Inc. including two short stories by Monica: The Robbery and Christmas Presents, a sequel to Camelot Confidential. The Robbery won first place in the Club’s Wordsmith contest in June, 2023.

Comedy and tragedy, action and reflection, poetry and prose. This wonderful anthology can be swallowed whole like a ripe fruit or nibbled and considered mindfully in snippets. Tucked inside are the flavours and tones of our province and nation, certainly, but also those of our shared humanity. Read, love, enjoy.
