Rowan McCandless, winner of the 2018 Constance Rooke Creative Nonfiction Prize, was recently interviewed by Malahat Review volunteer Stephanie Harrington for our January e-newsletter. Together, they discussed the hermit crab essay form, settler euro-colonialism, and writing about trauma in Rowan McCandless' winning essay, "Found Objects."
*
SH: What advice would you give to other writers, especially young people, who are writing about traumatic incidents?
*
RM: Given that this kind of writing can be triggering, I suggest having a good support system in place to draw comfort or strength from, when and if need be. I know for myself that I can only write in a state of calm and being centred, and meditation and mindfulness rituals help with that. It’s essential for a writer to consider their readiness; if you’ve reached a point in your healing that enables you to examine the event. I think that it’s crucial to consider self-care and pacing when writing about traumatic experiences and to recognize that at any point in the writing you can pack up and put the story away.
*
Look for "Found Objects" in our upcoming Spring 2019 Issue 206.

Here's an announcement that's legitimately major: although our government might be shutdown, we're still open for poetry & art submissions until Feb. 15th! & if you're able to help any of those folks who've been furloughed or are working without pay, do your neighbor a favor in these divisive times. Credit to Jim Zola from Issue 3 for the groovy art!

Loving Parents
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Casting me out again and again.
I crawl out the same way as my cat. •

I fend for myself now, more cat than human.
Watching all you other savages, drunk after your paychecks. ♡

All you men placing bet after bet.
When I walk by you howl at me, shouting nasty words. •

I stare right through you, to me you are all the same; putting humanity to shame. ♡

Do you think for one second I could be human? •

For human means self interest, it means violent, and most of all disease. ♡

My cat's fleas have higher morals than most of you. •

I stroke my cat and he takes pitty on me... to him I am the girl who doesn't quite fit in with the savages. ♡

He feels my shame.
Humans don't want me...
Cats know I am different. •

Maybe I just don't belong, I was an error.
Born at the wrong time in the wrong skin. ♡

I wish my skin was not so paper thin. •

What do you see? ♡

Let me tell you this; I will never forget how cold I feel when the rain comes. •

I am above my birth home, although it is hot inside and my birth parents are warm... ♡

I sit dripping on a slate roof.
At least my cat never leaves my side. ▪

A note to my parents; I wish God forgives all your sins x
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
An old repost but I feel this is one of my strongest pieces although pure fiction I have seen bits of this in parents... Children should be allowed to rejoice in their childhood without worrying about parents day in day out.

On whatever level child neglect is not okay, put your children first or don't have them in the first place!
My message with the poem tries to show the discomfort and disgust in the child who finds comfort in her pet more than her parents. ☆If you can connect with this please (of possible) share bellow? Or, optionally tell me why you liked the poem if you liked it? 🤗😘☆

Tatiana Servin De Maio’s “mother earth” in Salt Flat Hymns.

the first time she experienced that life was more than it seemed, more connected than we could know, she was swimming just past where her toes touched the ocean floor, holding her breath underwater to listen to the sounds of whales calling out for their babies just before her mom summoned for her to come closer to shore

Continued list of tips from my #blogpost on, “An #Introverts Step-by-Step Guide to Her 40th Birthday Party” (Full link in bio) .
.
Step 4: Bring quality #reads. Why, exactly, is the existence of #litmags some sort of literati secret? If you are the type that refuses to read past the first page of a #book unless it has earned that honor, then head right over to the best (local) #bookstore in town. Ask someone to point you to the #litmag shelf. There, pick out an arms worth of #literary journals based solely on the art cover you’d like to see framed by your bedside table. Yep, pick these books by their covers. You cannot go wrong. Every lit mag I have read so far is exceptional: Short #stories that haunt me more than my own traumas. #Poetry that compels me to read more poetry. #Photography that has me searching for connect-the-dot story. Visual art that lingers. #Interviews with human beings that make me feel more human. If you don’t want to go to a bookstore (wait, who are you?), then let me just leave these references here (clearly I eat litmags for breakfast; the short pieces are particularly well suited to 15-minute breaks in motherhood!) @thesunmagazine @batcityreview @nowheremagazine @granta_magazine @guernicamag @wilderness @theiowareview @orion_magazine

Country Boy series: (2)
Moves to the city
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Out in the woods the country boy needs no distractions, he finds everything his heart desires within them. ♡

Collecting branches kissed away by the wind for his hut, skimming stones, breathing in the the essence of life. •

No need for four walls in the country when you have mother natures arms to comfort you. ♡

Take him away from his beloved playground and he begins to tremble, tears slip out like fallen soldiers. •

The coutry and him are one. ♡

Without a blade of wheat, or grass between his lips he is just another city boy. •

The most important thing to a country boy is showing city folk how beautiful the country side can be. ♡

One by one he shows them what it means to be free! •

At night he tells his friends; the trees, the lakes and the hills that one day a beautiful city princess will return with me!
-'I will not forget you.' ♡ 'Sorry I have to go.' •

Then his insides melt a little, he knows every time the wind blows he will cry. ♡

He says to himself; 'I hope I find my lost part again amongst the trees.'
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This is the second of the Country Boy Series, a series which aims to show you my life... how I grew up in the deep woods with nothing but nature.

This photograph is an old one of me and I still remember how peaceful the woods were, how the serenity took me by surprise every single day!

I still love nature and need to go back to my roots when I can because the city is nlt my territory, I am wild and free!

Hope you liked it, *P.s. the frog statue was my best friend it used to speak to me and we played around together 🙈😂 ☆There are more of these coming out and hopefully you get to see me clearer.
Let me know your thoughts bellow please!☆
