AMPA talks to Best New Magazine Writer winner Kris Demeanor

I had an interview today with the Best New Magazine Writer recipient. Calgarian Kris Demeanor won the National Magazine Award for his story "Get a Real Job" which appeared in the December 2007 issue of Unlimited.

The very quotable performance artist, singer/songwriter, and former menial job maestro, spoke about what the award means to him; how hard it is to fake good writing; and what he's working on now (note: it's not a job packing pharmaceuticals).

Check out our full interview in the May edition of MagaScene. If you haven't signed up yet for AMPA's monthly e-newsletter full of Alberta magazine news, jobs and people, do so at www.albertamagazines.com.
