“Where Things Rise, Unannounced” by Erin MacNair won EVENT magazine’s 2018 Creative non-fiction contest, and was also long listed for the 2018 CBC nonfiction contest. EVENT magazine contest judge Lori Ann Wilson said: (MacNair) is acutely aware what’s on the surface is always underwritten by the past, the unknown and the unseen.” The various themes of mental illness, eco-anxiety, and parental guilt are woven into this story of struggle and acceptance.
