Tyrwhitt, Janice. “Rhymes in a Ten-Cent Scribbler”. Maclean’s (1 September 1952), 14-15, 42-44.
In honour of International Women’s Day 2021, SFU ran a Wikipedia “Edit-a-thon,” with the focus on building the Wikipedia corpus to include more women, especially strong, entrepreneurial women who are working these days to make our world a better place. Well, given that most (all at this point I believe) of our authors are no longer living, that wasn’t going to work. But Edna Jaque, called “The Poet Laureate of the West,” was missing. So I fixed that.
In doing my online research, I found this 1952 interview with Enda Jaques, published in Maclean’s magazine. I really enjoyed the immediacy of the author’s voice coupled with the interviewer’s talent, and thought I would share it here, even though this is a digital copy from Maclean’s online archives.
