The Annotated Rudy Wiebe

“A zoology major who didn’t really want to study science anymore, I had found his introductory creative writing class while flipping through the thick U of A calendar for half-interesting electives to round out my final year. The prerequisites for admission included a portfolio, so I wrote a couple of short stories and slipped them under Wiebe’s door in the mostly deserted Humanities Building in late August. When Wiebe summoned me a few days later, he made it quite clear the samples I’d provided were execrable. Then he told me I could go ahead and register because in one of the stories, based on real events, I’d at least tried to write something I had a clue about: being young and stupid.”
