about

Twelve years in the making, Breathing the Page: Reading the Act of Writing is a must-read for students of creative writing. This collection is comprised of two sets of twelve essays each. "Materials" reflects on the history and animate nature of the objects we use in the act of writing, from computers, to pens and pencils, right down to paper. Warland subverts our assumptions about these 'tools' by making the case that our materials are also our collaborators. 'Concepts' investigates, names, and addresses the powerful forces at work beneath the language of craft. Warland shows that what ultimately determines whether a piece of writing succeeds or flounders is a writer's ability to be humbled, overcome, or guided by these forces.

Betsy Warland wrote her first two lyric prose essays in open if broken (1984) and was the Saskatoon Public Library’s Writer-in-Residence from 1993-94. In 2002 she taught a poetry workshop at Sage Hill, and is currently the director of The Writer’s Studio at Simon Frasier University, as well as the Vancouver Manuscript Intensive.
