PQ Weekly Roundup: 22 Oct 2021

PQ Weekly Roundup calendar graphic

Every Friday, the PQ Weekly Roundup collects the most shared links in our social media network—bookish articles, reviews, quizzes, recommendations and more—in convenient digest form.

  • Have you had a chance to check out the interactive small press map showcasing Canadian presses over at the Toronto International Festival of Authors site? (Note: Some people have commented that not all presses are represented. This is true, but not necessarily malicious. There was a general call-out for materials, so if you don’t see your favourite indie publisher, they might not have gotten around to sending in their info.)

  • If you like a good bookish documentary, you might be interested in Writing the Land, which celebrates Canadian literature, over at CBC Gem.

  • There’s a virtual event on the way about Elizabeth Brewster, featuring Quill friend Ingrid Ruthig. You, too, can tune in on November 3, if you so wish!

  • I was quite taken aback by this longish article about ghostwriting. It goes beyond the conception of the a writer being quietly paid to write a book for someone else and talks about different forms of “invisible” writing, from preparing social media copy for big newspapers to writing podcast scripts. Well worth the read.

  • And finally, by far our most popular post of the week was our post about Mark Frutkin’s excellent book, The Artist and the Assassin. Don’t miss this thrilling read!


There’s a nip in the air, Quill fans, which means yours truly will be hoping for a weekend that features a little cozy couch reading with a hot beverage and a warm blanket. Hope you find time to do the same.

Happy Friday,
