Congratulations to Jane Campbell, whose creative non-fiction piece, “Good as Dead,” which first appeared in EVENT 45/2, has been selected to appear in Best Canadian Essays 2016 (Tightrope Books).

“In the early 2000s, boarding school was still a liar’s paradise. This was before Facebook, before Twitter and Instagram, back before the past left a paper trail of selfies and status updates. Your school friends only knew about your school life. Everything else–your childhood, your weekends at home, your summers and school breaks–took place off-screen and could be excised, edited or exaggerated if you were so inclined.”

-“Good as Dead,” Jane Campbell. Check out the full essay in EVENT 45/2.
