2 AITKEN, Kelley, Sue GOYETTE, and Barbara SCOTT. LYON, Annabel. McKAY, Don. STENSON, Fred. First Writes.
Banff Centre Press, Banff, AB, 2005, ISBN:1894773160 
AITKEN, Kelley, Sue GOYETTE, and Barbara SCOTT, eds. First Writes. (Banff, AB): The Banff Centre Press, 2005. First Printing. Pp. (6),vii-viii,1-149,(3). 8vo, illustrated brown, white and green card covers with black and white lettering to front cover and to brown spine. "It's one thing to sign on for the long and lonely apprenticeship that is the life of a writer; most writers have, or eventually develop, a certain talen for that kind of solitude. But when it comes time to publish that first book, the experience of crossing the line from private to public space can be daunting -- even overwhelming. 'First Writes' explores the trepidations and trioumphs of becoming apublished author. In it, Canadian authors describe their 'first writes' by writing openly, sometimes scathingly, and often hilariously, of their expe ctations and insecurities, humiliations and triumphs at every stage of publication. In this collection, novelists, playwrights, poets, filmmakers, andshort story writers offer anecdotes, musings, and reminiscences on the oft en bewildering process of having a first book published." - from the rear cover.
