In this second collection from The Banff Centre's Writing Studio program, forty-one accomplished writers share some of the poetry and fiction that grew from their Banff writing experience. In celebration of the Writing Studio's twenty-fifth anniversary, Rip Rap joins Meltwater as an important gathering of Banff Centre alumni, a tribute to the continuing influence of Banff on the lives and careers of writers across the country. The selections in Rip Rap are infused with a fresh perspective, offering a rare and intelligent clarity of vision. In joining the path travelled by so many before them, each writer adds his or her voice to the bedrock--both of Banff's writing community and of Canada's literary landscape.

Editorial Review

"... the editors were looking for pieces that made them tingle ... and to which they hoped the reader would also be drawn. Many of the chosen pieces are reflective, rich with detail, and composed with strong and definitive voices."--Wendy Boulding, Prairie Books NOW
