New Literary Collection Looks at the World Through a Blue-collar Lens

I've seen a lot of injustice and betrayal take place in this world, on both a personal and global scale.

According to the Census Bureau there are more than 350,000,000 people in North America, so why do we focus so much attention on celebrities and politicians as opposed to the voices of the many?

W.A. Salmon, Author of “Meanderings,” considers himself to be an average bloke with a lot on his mind. He has spent his adult life turning those thoughts into poems and short stories written to provide insight into the world of an everyday citizen.

“I’ve seen a lot of injustice and betrayal take place in this world on both a personal and global scale,” Salmon said. “I write with these themes in mind to make people think about their daily lives.”

“Meanderings” stresses the importance of social issues drawn from news topics seen in black and white everyday, but also includes the lighter side with some fantasy and wordplay to lighten the read.

“Unlike the majority of news we see I do not want my book to rely solely on negativity,” Salmon said. “I have included works of fantasy and myth to provide an escape with a dash of positivity for my readers.”

About the author
W.A. Salmon is a longshoreman by trade, but studied English Literature in Langara College. He started writing as a child, including placing second in a poetry contest only falling short of the top prize because they thought an adult helped him. In the early 1980’s Salmon was participating in an acting class when the group asked him to use his creative flair to write them a series of new scripts. He has been channeling that creative writing ever since and has turned his years of work into the collection, “Meanderings.”
