CanLit Resources

CanLit Guides is an online open-access educational resource on the teaching of Canadian literature through the discourses of the journal.

CanLit Resources supplement and enhance material published in the journal.

CanLit Authors includes links to article, opinion and notes, forum, poetry, review, etc., authors published in the journal, alphabetically arranged by the authors’ last names.

Our CanLit Poets page hosts an extensive archive of poems first published in the journal that are searchable by poet.

Our new CanLit Author Spotlights are featured on our social media channels (Facebook & Twitter) and include write ups about the authors, their work in our journal, and a link to the issue in which their piece appears.

As we are adding to our collection of CanLit Resources, we’ve begun hosting CanLit Poetry Readings. We’ve included recordings from our 60th anniversary celebration. Keep an eye out for our latest Verse Forward poetry reading videos!

CanLit Interviews with Authors contains interviews with Canadian literary figures (writers and critics) in written and audio formats. These include conversations about the field of Canadian Literature as well as advice for up-and-coming authors working on literature produced in Canada, about Canada, or by Canadian authors.

The CanLit Special Projects section houses material about the history of Canadian Literature, including the life and accomplishments of our founding editor, George Woodcock. This resource features a downloadable ebook of his editorials. The Special Projects section also hosts supplementary material for issue 207, the Mordecai Richler issue, and includes a beautiful walking tour of Montreal, annotated bibliography, and interviews with Gerald Wexler and Norman Ravvin, as well as a Virtual Field Trop of Disappearing Moon Café‘s Chinatown, and materials from a panel on “Surveying CanLit: A Presentation-Interview Panel on Course Syllabi.”
