Publisher seeks more input from Aboriginal Communities
“There is nothing you cannot tell a child, it is just how you tell it” – Margie Wolfe
Second Story Press is looking to build on the diversity of their list - already strongly populated by books and series on social justice for both adults and children - by announcing a competition for their 25thAnniversary in December; a call for contemporary writing that reflects the modern experience of First Nations and Aboriginal communities.
“As our 25th anniversary approaches in December, we want to add to the incredible diversity of voices that we have published over the years. Consistently identifying topics that we felt need more discussion is what we have built our reputation upon, a reputation that is recognized by some of the largest publishers all over the world. Over the years we have taken topics that are difficult or just outside the mainstream and brought them to the attention of teachers, librarians and readers, by telling great stories.” Margie Wolfe
Working in feminist book publishing for more than thirty years, publisher Margie Wolfe has also written Women’s Studies guides and has co-edited several book collections. She and three other women founded Second Story Feminist Press in 1988.
