article On the heels of the publication of the first edition of The Globe and the Mail, which was published in March, there are still a number of Canadian writers in the top ten list of Canadian fiction writers.
Among them, author-at-large Yvonne Hinchliffe is on the list, as are former CBC journalist Anne Lamont and former editor-in-chief of the National Post Chris Brouillette.
Hinchriffe, a writer whose novels include The Lost, The End and The House of the Lost, is currently in the midst of writing her second novel, The House on the Hill, which is set in the aftermath of the 2015 Paris attacks.
Hiltliffe was also named one of the 100 most influential people in Canadian fiction, the equivalent of a Pulitzer Prize.
Lamont, who has won several awards for her novels including the Bram Stoker Award and the Bram Street Award, was also selected as one of Canada’s top 100 women in fiction.
The House On the Hill is scheduled to be published in October.
Other Canadian writers who have made the cut are Anne Maitland, who is one of three short fiction authors on the new list, and Rachelle Blais, a former Toronto Star journalist who is now the director of communications for the National Film Board of Canada.
“I think that a lot of writers are still in the spotlight, and I think it’s important to recognize the work that is going on and recognize it for the kind of work that it is,” said Lamont.
The Globe is one part of the CBC Network and includes the CBC Radio One and the CBC Television Network.
In an interview, Blais said she’s happy to be included in the list and that her stories “are not just about me and my family.
They are about the people that we live in and about our city and about the challenges we have to confront in order to survive.”
The list of 100, which also includes some former CBC journalists, includes authors like Canadian writer and columnist Laura Smith, who was previously an associate editor of the national newspaper.
She also wrote The Long Road, a history of the Canadian economy that examines the history of Canada from the mid-1800s to the end of the Second World War.
“As a young woman who had just moved to Canada from France, the book was a revelation,” Smith said in a release.
“This book is about the intersection of family, politics, science and faith.
It’s also a celebration of the richness of Canadian literature and the diversity of our country.”
