Profile: Richard Lemm
by Jane Ledwell
Like a superstitious ball player getting ready for a new season, Dr. Richard Lemm may be ritually dusting and lining up his office knick-knacks in the UPEI English Department where he has been teaching since 1986, full-time since 1988. At the beginning of the school year, he smiles, “I’m always nervous – which is good.” In his dreaming life, teaching nightmares are now
In Her Own Write
by Ann Thurlow
I cannot for the life of me understand why more people don’t love eggplant. I think maybe eggplants are like a good friend you haven’t met yet; as soon as someone makes the proper introduction, you’ll be together for life.

The Cove Journal
by JoDee Samuelson
The terns are busy fishing in tidal pools as we walk across the Cove with our departing children for a final time.

The Other Notebook
by David Helwig
Walk as far as you can each day for many days, up and down mountains, past high country farms, through rain and sun, past ancient churches and modern towns.

This competition was announced a couple of years ago and, indeed, the proposals
Summerside, P.E.I. author Susan Rodgers’ fourth book in the Drifters series, Riptide, is now available as an ebook. Print books of should be on bookstore shelves in time for Christmas.
In an attempt to reconnect after the tumultuous and terrifying events of the past few years, singer Jessie Wheeler and actor Josh Sawyer have squirreled themselves into a weathered grey farmhouse on the
One Great Thing
by Ann Thurlow
The farmer’s whistle is made from a bent tin can and when she blows it, Hazel the border collie comes running. The other dog, Penny, whines from the house; she wants to work, too! But today it’s Hazel’s show. And the delighted crowd at Pembroke Farm laughs and applauds as she rounds up the ducks and gets them into a little wading pool. It’s the sheep she really wants, though.
