#Magazines, Newsletters and Reports Printed Affordably!
First Choice Books prints a lot of magazines newsletters and reports. One of the latest was titled Bikes Mean Business by Tom Berkhout and Ray Straatsma. The report has already made a big splash in the media via newspaper, internet and radio. We were pleasantly surprised to find a three quarter page spread discussing the report’s findings on the front page of the business section of the Times Colonist and to hear one of the authors being interviewed by CBC Radio in the morning. Read the complete report courtesy of the Greater Victoria Cycling Coalition.
The discussion featured among other publications The Concrete Garden also printed at the bindery.
The panel included moderator Dr. Lynne Van Luven (Associate Dean, Writing), Nadia Grutter (Coastal Spectator), Patrick Close (The Warren), Quinn MacDonald (Concrete Garden), Patrick Grace (This Side of West) and Andrea Routley (plenitudemagazine.ca). All magazines were created by students from the Department of Writing at the University of Victoria.
A Giller Prize winner has this to say “I studied with so many great teachers at UVic. The calibre of guidance was amazing.”

Last but not least, later this week we will begin the second edition print run of Pulp Literature Magazine. It was launched by a Kickstarter project last year. The editors are Jennifer Landels, with a degree in Mediaeval English Literature; Susan Pieters, MFA and Mel Anastasiou, pen and ink artist extraordinaire. There are many favorable reviews on the Pulp Literature website.
We are thrilled to be involved with such a talented group of blossoming professionals!
