I worked with her on something really briefly, but I never had her for a course. I think she's teaching at UVic now.

And I have this weird feeling I'm gonna meet an Australian tomorrow, who's gonna say "Hey, I know a Canadian, her name is Suzannah..."

And I can't get the tune for It's a Small World out of my head. And sudden flashbacks to gradeschool theatre performance... very spooky.

I write literary fiction also, or at least my current project being lit, but i find it tough finding others that want to talk/discuss/live the literary life.

The worst part is trying to get info for literary queries, or literary style, etc. 90 percent of the info out there in writing is for genre writing.

If any one has any good places to find some info drop it in here.

Prepare to reap the whirlwind.

Lyman Baker KSU, Critical Concepts (Baker Left KSU so the site hasn't been updated since 2004, but it's a treasure still);

The Silva Rhetoricae, a comprehensive primer on rhetoric by Dr. Gideon Burton, Brigham Young University;

Note that many university sites publish literary topics that are publicly accessible.
