There is no greater pleasure of mine, than to have friends who are utterly dedicated to what they’re doing. To show love for their craft be in the law, medicine, design, or in this case, writing.
Shannon Webb-Campbell is a writer: author, journalist, editorialist. She is just finishing her term as this year’s CWILA’s critic-in-residence, and is the 2014 Out in Print award winner. She contributes regularly to The Coast, Quill & Quire, and will be releasing her first book of poetry with Breakwater books, called ‘Still No Word’ in February 2015.
She also has the unique experience of sharing a couple nights in a charming Sackville farmhouse with me for one rainy weekend whilst being in the throes of having seen Margaret Atwood in person.
We met up for coffee and photos at the Trident Booksellers Café on Hollis Street in Halifax. If you haven’t been, and you love books and coffee, you’ve really been missing out. It is just so damn cozy, and there are shelves teeming with books, and they even grate the nutmeg for their lattés by hand. Really charming. Especially on a rainy day.
