    Just Words makes a Big Splash

    The first collection of Blank Spaces essays, stories, and poems is a true thing of beauty!

    http://amzn.to/2iTwLBXCelebrating 34 Canadian authors and their work as featured during the first year of Blank Spaces, a literary arts magazine birthed out of small town Ontario. Filled with creative non-fiction, short stories, and poetry, Just Words Volume One is a true reflection of the heart, humour, and depth of Canadian creatives; capturing, in its text, the very pulse of Blank Spaces.

    Editor in Chief, Alanna Rusnak, along with her editing partners, Pamela Hopwood and Michelle McLaughlin, have brought this collection together beautifully. Wrapped in the colours of Calgary artist, Paula Timm, the book delivers as much beauty on the outside as its words do inside.

    Officially launched at the Word on the Street Festival at the Toronto, Ontario harbour front, Just Words Volume 1 was met with a warm reception from eager readers, going on to be named the Number One new release for Canadian Collections on Amazon.
    "What a wonderfully eclectic collection of Canadian literature!" says one Amazon reader. "This is one of those books you can pick up in any mood knowing, with confidence, that there will be a story just right for the moment. Sci-fi, poetry, vulnerability, laughter, insight, and so many meaningful memories are found in these pages."

    A Goodreads reader says it perfectly when she states, "Here we celebrate the diversity and simplicity of all things good about Canadian literature and arts; and move forward, together, in sharing the very best of Canadian writing, poetry, art, photography, and creative works that this formidable Canlit magazine Blank Spaces has to offer."

    Just Words Volume 1 is available in paperback from this website, Amazon, Barnes and Nobel, and blankspaces.ca. Ebooks are available through Kindle.
