About this guide
This guide has been guest-curated by author and Camosun English instructor, Laurie Elmquist.
Camosun College has many accomplished writers, editors, and illustrators. Their books sit on the library shelves, but we thought we’d bring them into the light and put them on display. You might be surprised at the range of topics: everything from West Coast cooking, cycling in Hanoi, to caring for our planet. Think of all the people who work at Camosun and you’ll understand why their stories and research have taken them into so many corners of the world.
Camosun is a community of writers, and you are part of this community. If you are a writer yourself, discover what other students are writing and drawing. We’ve included a small sampling of comics created by Camosun students, but there are many more comics available in the library. In addition, Beside the Point is Camosun’s literary journal of student work. We hope you are inspired by the wide variety of books that have been written by people that work at Camosun. Maybe someday we’ll see your book on the shelf!
