Profile: Sarah Hagen

by Jane Ledwell

Not many Islanders commute to Toronto and west, but when touring classical pianist Sarah Hagen is home at Argyle Shore on Prince Edward Island, she is inevitably home from somewhere. On the day of this interview, it is from a tour, mostly of care homes, in Manitoba, with a quick detour to Sioux Lookout (“it’s only five hours from Winnipeg,” she grins) and a

The Cove Journal

by JoDee Samuelson

One memorable fall day when I was in grade school, my teacher Mrs. Bowden handed each of us a sheet of paper filled with leaves (cranked out on a Gestetner—remember the delicious smell of fresh blue ink?) and we were instructed to color them red and orange. What? Alberta had poplar and birch trees and everyone knew that their leaves turned yellow.

Talking Bands

by Evan James Ceretti

Story Sheidow (guitar, vocals), Emilee Sorrey (drums, vocals), and Jesara Friesen (bass, vocals) make up the all-female power trio Coy. There are maybe only a couple of other all-female groups based on PEI, but it’s probably safe to say that Coy is currently the only hard-hitting all-female group.

Sheidow would often see Sorrey around town and would say, “We

The Nature of PEI

by Gary Schneider

Our province is blessed with an abundant population of beautiful native ferns. They vary in size and shape, in how they spread, and in the habitats they are found in. The tiny grape fern is quite rare in the province, but even when you know where to find them, they are well hidden amongst the taller woodland plants.

Others, such as the cinnamon fern, interrupted

Done dining

I’m Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

It’s funny how things happen.

In 1999 I was a university dropout working at the bingo hall, and slopping drinks at a local bar. Not that there’s any shame in either of those occupations, but they didn’t present much in the way of future career opportunities. After repeated suggestions that I parlee my smooth bingo calling skills into a career in radio, I threw

A gift of Island poetry: Judy Gaudet

Curated by Deidre Kessler


Outside my window the world is hovering
on hummingbird wings beating such a quick time
it’s as if it’s standing still, holding its breath
until it lets go and roars and batters through
this still scene with snow flying and winds baffling
the house, the garden disappearing in a blind
whirling robe of white fire. The geranium, the begonia,

Christmas dinner at St. Anthony’s in Woodstock

Way Up West
by Jan Cox

Preston and Helen Murphy had an idea kicking around for several years. They wanted to put on a Christmas day dinner. Preston said, “Christmas day was always hard for me. I thought it might be hard for others too.” His wife Helen joined in, “After the kids left the nest, it was time to try it.”

That was eight years ago. The annual
