Correction

We are grateful to 2011 Leacock Memorial Medal winner Trevor Cole for granting us an interview, which ran in the October 2011 edition of the Leacock Associates’ newsletter, The Newspacket. Unfortunately, the incorrect version of the interview appears in the print edition. One passage in particular needs clarification.

It reads, “…it is surprising to me how few writers in the country use humour. And readers love it when they encounter it in a book. But some publishers are afraid of it. I think I know why.”

It should read, “…it’s surprising to me how few writers in the country use humour. First of all, I think realism demands it; our lives are filled with humour. And readers love it when they encounter it in a book. But some publishers are afraid of it, I think. I don’t know why.”

Our apologies to Trevor for any inconvenience or embarrassment the errors may have caused him.

The correct version of the entire interview appears here.
