Hi, I'm Nancy Waddell and I'm the editor and co-publisher of The New Canadian Stories along with my husband, Mark. I have always been a writer, writing short stories about animals when I was a child, and entering writing contests in high school. I also graduated with a BA in Professional Writing from The University of Waterloo. My heart is with writers, and I'm excited to invite you to The New Canadian Stories Magazine, a literary publication written by or about Canadians. Ed Janzen began the original Canadian Stories over 20+ years ago. We are continuing on his legacy with The New Canadian Stories, a writing community that supports one another and provides a forum for writers to showcase their work. Join us as we spotlight amazing folk writing from all over Canada -- poetry, flash fiction, personal stories, photo essays and more.
