C.R. Esaryk

For the Plight of Its Children, fiction, Issue 22, March 1, 2013

When did you start writing? Stories I began writing independently as a young teenager--they always seemed to involve the world exposed as a hologram, and lots of angst.

When and what and where did you first get published? An essay in 1st-year University about Modernist writing & "the ordinary."

What themes do you like to write about? Love, absurd love, hopeless love. Really anything sappy and all mixed up.

What books and/or stories have most resonated with you as an author? I've always had a special respect for The Giver by Louis Lowry.

Born in Nanaimo, C.R. Esaryk currently lives abroad in search of stories and a meaningful world.
