Synopsis: L.M. Montgomery contributed this sketch to The Spirit of Canada (1939), a souvenir album published by the Canadian Pacific Railway in honour of the King and Queen of England during their royal visit to Canada in May 1939. For the last two paragraphs, Montgomery drew on the text of an earlier sketch, “I Have Come Home,” published in 1936.

An Author Speaks (essay)

The Dalhousie Gazette (Halifax), 24 February 1939, 2.

Synopsis: In this essay, drawn in part on her 1915 essay “The Way to Make a Book,” Montgomery offers advice about writing in terms of authenticity, skill development, and revision. It appeared in an issue of The Dalhousie Gazette published by a student collective that consisted entirely of women, apparently an annual tradition at the time.
