Each genre—poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction—is represented by local authors. Some, like Emily Carr and P. K. Page, are no longer with us; others, like Lorna Crozier and Philip Kevin Paul, continue mapping out distinguished literary careers; and still others, like Jason Jobin and Julie Paul, belong to a remarkable new generation of writers who call Victoria, in British Columbia, Canada, their home.
